2023 May Cook Heart of Gold Award Recipients Announced!

Our volunteers are simply amazing. They go above and beyond, every single day, ensuring our children are seen, heard and remain the focus of their cases.

Each year, our agency selects a CASA (or two) who not only went above and beyond, but who truly moved mountains, to receive the May Cook Heart of Gold Award. Named after a former CASA volunteer who grew up in the foster care system and died in 2000, the award recognizes volunteers who exemplify her kindness, optimism and tenacity.

We are thrilled to announce this year’s May Cook Heart of Gold Award recipients: Laura Faino and Gail Shapiro. Congratulations to both of you! We are grateful for all you do for our children, their families and our community. Click on the links below to learn more about why Laura and Gail were selected this year!
