I recently had a few people open up to me about their abusive past relationships. One whom I was particularly close with was clearly suffering from post-traumatic stress. This led me to see physical and emotional abuse in a different light, so after hours of in-classroom, -courthouse, and -shelter training, I became an advocate for CASA. When I can, I help the cause in their day-to-day work, victims with their legal options, and the children so often stuck in the middle of these situations.
