CASA for Kids, Inc.
Marilyn has been a CASA Volunteer Advocate for Ingham County since April 2018 and is dually sworn in to serve Eaton County children as well. Marilyn became a volunteer because she has wanted to help abused and neglected children for as long as she could remember. Marilyn shares, “When I was young I knew a child who was abused and eventually taken from his home and that has always driven me to help kids. I taught preschool for many years and had a few kids that were adopted after being abused or neglected.” She explains, “I’ve only had one case with 3 kids and I’d have to say, they effected my life in a positive way. They have also showed me what RESILIANCE really looks like!” With a smile, Marilyn continues, “I am honored to be a voice for these YOUNG PEOPLE. I absolutely love being a volunteer advocate and am so proud to be a small part of the CASA’s mission to serve these children!!”
