I don’t have an ideal CASA child in mind, however I work well with children 7 & up that’s where my expertise is as I’ve never had children of my own. I used to mentor a teenage boy and girl many moons ago! They lived in Englewood and Teaneck and each came from a single parent household.
My husband and I would take them with us to baseball games and the Meadowlands State Fair. I would spoil them on their birthdays and write them notes of encouragement on a regular basis.
Needless to say my ideal CASA child would be able to verbally paint me a picture of their current life with their resource parent(s) and life with their bio parent(s). I would enjoy getting to know their interests and form a bond of trust with them.
