Ron and Barbara
Ron and Barbara Evans, 4th Judicial District CASA, ID

Clare McCarroll, CASA of Atlantic & Cape May Counties Inc., NJ
"My name is Clare McCarroll. I am married with two kids and a dog. I live in a two-story home and work part-time at Macy's.

CASA Volunteer Kathy Bach
Kathy Bach, Winnebago County CASA Program, Rockford, IL
"I believe that families need to be together—children need their family of origin if at all possible. I have never believed that someone gets up in the morning and says: “I’m going to beat my kids. I think that each and every family, in its disfunction, loves their children. I truly believe that." Read more from Kathy Bach
