Children’s Ambassador Panel

At the end of the day it’s not about what you have or even what you’ve accomplished… it’s about who you’ve lifted up, who you’ve made better. It’s about what you’ve given back.

- Denzel Washington

This group of community-minded professionals supports the CASA organization with outreach and philanthropic support, as well as serving as a valuable resource to assist the organization in meeting its goals and objectives.
