Making a Difference in our Community — Stephanie Ebert


Stephanie Ebert talks about what volunteering for Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) means to her.

What, personally speaking, drives you to volunteer?

"What drives me to volunteer is a desire to assist families in crisis. Being a former foster care provider I’ve seen the struggle families go through to stay together and want to do what I can to help to make that happen."

What makes volunteering important to a community?

"I believe volunteers are vital to a successful community. There are so many areas volunteers can assist in. With a strong group of volunteers we can make our community a better place to live."

How can people help CASA?

"People can help CASA by joining and giving a small amount of time each month to make a huge difference in a family’s struggle to reunite and grow into a better family while their children are in foster care."
