How do you commemorate a 17th birthday in a new foster home in the middle of a pandemic? With panache. Her CASA Bridges Coach arranged for a party that would honor physical distance, but celebrate a milestone. While the young teen sat on her porch, her Bridges Coach sat in the yard, and her CASA Volunteer joined in via Zoom. There were masks and sanitizers and gloves, but there were also smiles and laughter and hope.
Because you can change a child's story.
