Senator Winnie Brinks Recognizes a Local Legacy

by | Sep 30, 2022 | News

In June 2022, CASA of Kent County was presented with a special tribute in honor of our 30th birthday. Our local representative, State Senator Winnie Brinks, stopped by the Kent County Courthouse to pay us a visit and deliver the tribute. The CASA team enjoyed celebrating with her by posing for a few photos.

The Tribute recognizes the impact the CASA program has made in the lives of children in foster care in Kent County over the past three decades. It states, “Thanks to the dedication of its staff and the generosity of its donors, CASA has made a significant impact. A child who connects with one of CASA’s highly trained volunteers spends less time in the foster care system, is half as likely to re-enter foster care, has better outcomes in school, and is connected to more of the available services that can help them to thrive.”

The Tribute is signed by Senator Brinks, Lieutenant Governor Garlin Gilchrist II, and Governor Gretchen Whitmer.
