Advocates Who Inspire
CASA DuPage is pleased to introduce you to
one of our extraordinary Advocates
Wynn was sworn in to the DuPage County Court System as a CASA Volunteer Advocate in March of 2017, and has navigated through many challenging situations. Wynn's cases have been demanding, but Wynn has always been there for the children.
Wynn’s current case involves a 14-year-old girl who is struggling. When the public health crisis restricted regular visits, that did not stop Wynn from maintaining contact. They would FaceTime, share phone calls and when in-person visits were allowed, Wynn traveled to residential facilities, hospitals and foster homes without regard to the distance. They shared snacks, played games, danced, sang, painted their nails and shared tears during difficult times.
In December 18, 2020, the 14-year-old girl was relocated without her personal belongings. After much confusion, Wynn was able to obtain her belongings from the previous foster home and 3 days before Christmas, Wynn drove to the foster home, picked up the minor’s things and delivered them to her new residence. There was no visitation at the time, but Wynn drove over 170 miles round trip so girl could have her belongings for Christmas.
Thank you, Wynn, for being a CASA Volunteer Advocate who inspires us!
