Recruitment Event at Guthrie Green
We are overjoyed at the success of our Movie in the Park night at Guthrie Green last Thursday! Our staff was able to sign up new volunteers, raise community awareness, and provide popcorn for movie-goers to snack on. What a crowd! Thank you to everyone who came out for the movie and stopped by our table to chat with our Superhero Staff. We already can’t wait for next year! #MovieintheParkwithTulsaCASA
Volunteer Spotlight – July 2019
Congratulations to our Volunteer Spotlight this month, Audrey DeLay! With a Masters Degree in Social Work, Audrey is a natural fit for our organization as a volunteer. Thank you for being an outstanding advocate for your CASA kiddos!
Last night, we hosted the inaugural CASA University event for volunteers to network and learn more about the key components of their role. All in all, it was an overwhelming success! We are so proud of our volunteers and want to thank each of the advocates who were able to attend and help us kick off a new tradition. #CASAU
New Advocates – May AND June!
It’s a BIG day for Tulsa CASA! With all of the rain and flooding in the Tulsa area, our May swearing-in ceremony was delayed. Today, we swore-in both the May and June classes. AND we managed to fit everyone in for a group photo! In total, we have 19 new advocates, our summer intern, and our new advocate manager to congratulate. We’re so happy to officially welcome you all! 🎉
Movie in the Park with Tulsa CASA
We are thrilled to officially announce our 2019 Recruitment Event: Movie in the Park with Tulsa CASA! Join us on July 11th for a fun evening at Guthrie Green. Captain Marvel is showing on the big-screen in the park and you can meet Tulsa CASA staff and volunteers, as well as receive more information about how you can become a Court Appointed Special Advocate for a child in foster care.
Invite your family and friends and come say hello! Get there early to find a good seat, have dinner and hangout. Food trucks will be available thanks to the Greater Tulsa Association of REALTORS and Tulsa CASA staff members will be handing out popcorn for the movie. Pre-party starts at 6:30!
Volunteer Spotlight – June 2019
Help us congratulate our June Volunteer Spotlight, Ashley Ailey!
“Tulsa CASA offers children a person who is involved in their case from beginning to end. A person who is not associated with DHS, the ADA, or the child’s attorney. A person who is solely there for their best interest. These children are the future of our community; giving them the supports they need to be successful is extremely vital.”
New Advocates – April 2019
We had another group of lucky advocates this month! They are the first CASAs to be sworn-in by Judge Drieling. Judge Drieling is also new to the Juvenile Bureau, and we are so happy to have her presiding over some of our cases! Congratulations CASAs!
National Volunteer Week
Happy National Volunteer Week! Last year, 204 Tulsa CASA volunteers advocated for 434 children on 226 different cases. To all of our CASA volunteers and board members, THANK YOU for the work that you do on behalf of our organization and children in Tulsa County! 💙
Board Spotlight – April 2019
We are delighted to spotlight our Board President, Debbie King, this month! One of her first tasks as Board President was to form the Search Committee that would ultimately select the next Executive Director of Tulsa CASA, Inc. During that time, Debbie made sure the staff felt included and respected in the search process. We can’t thank her enough for everything she has done and will continue to do for Tulsa CASA in 2019!
