Hello my name is Michelle Zombeck and I am proud and honored to say that I am the new CASA Coordinator for Gratiot County.
Some of you may be wondering what is CASA? CASA is an acronym for Court Appointed Special Advocate(CASA). A CASA "is a trained community volunteer appointed by a judge to speak up for the best interests of an abused, neglected or abandoned child involved in a juvenile court deprivation proceeding. Bringing urgency to a child's needs both in and out of a courtroom, CASA volunteers advocate for safety, permanence and well-being for children through independent recommendations."
