Dallas CASA Named as ASC 2015-2016 Beneficiary
CASA was founded in 1977, when a Seattle superior court judge, amidst an overwhelmed child welfare system, grew concerned about making decisions on behalf of abused and neglected children in his court without enough information. He felt that more individualized attention and time for gathering important facts would produce better outcomes for the children. He decided to appoint community volunteers to work on behalf of the children in his court. Dallas CASA was one of three pilot programs established in 1979.
Message from ASC Lead Co-Chair
Cortland Kelly Grynwald
This year is ASC’s 30th “Diamond” Anniversary. As a group, we strive to make every year more successful than the last on behalf of each of our beneficiaries. This year will be no exception and, as Lead Co-Chair, I am excited to rise to the occasion and help make this ASC’s best year yet. This would be impossible, of course, without the support, hard work and dedication demonstrated by my Incoming Co-Chair, Kara Altenbaumer-Price, the amazing chairs for our various committees, and our members at large. This group is the epitome of a well-oiled machine that, together, makes incredible things happen. I am thrilled to have Dallas CASA as our beneficiary this year, and know that their services and our mission make for a strong tie that will resonate within the legal community and far beyond. I thank the ASC membership in advance for the great achievements we are about to accomplish on their behalf!
