Thanks Mary Anne Bressler, a 2019 Advocate of the Year!
“Families aren’t defined by anything other than the sharing of one another’s hearts,” Mary Anne says. She says the support she gets in her work as a CASA Volunteer makes all the difference. “Despite how difficult the work is, the staff at ProKids are so live-giving. I find it inspiring to work with them on behalf of our children.”
Thanks Jill Baker Braun, a 2019 ProKids Advocate of the Year!
For Jill, being a Prokids CASA Volunteer was the logical next step after she and her husband adopted their sons, now 19 and 21. “I saw that ProKids was such a great agency in terms of meeting the needs of kids in the most desperate situations,” she says. “We’re the ones who don’t take a side except the kids’ side. Every hour, every child, it’s planting a seed even if we don’t see the positive outcome today.”
