Angela Langstrom, Children’s Voice: CASA, Douglas County, GA
GA CASA 2013 Volunteer of the Year
Angela Langstrom, the 2013 CASA Volunteer of the Year in Georgia, has been a dedicated CASA volunteer with Children’s Voice: CASA, Inc., in Douglas County, for three years. She has advocated for 11 children in five families during her tenure. Her organizational skills, gift of engagement and even-tempered approach are strong assets in her role as a CASA volunteer.
Juvenile Court Judge Peggy Walker states that “Angela Langstrom is a powerful voice for children…She makes certain she knows everything about her case and the child for whom she speaks. She does not hesitate to advocate and make clear what the needs of the child are. She is compassionate and devoted to this work. It is a privilege and honor to work with someone who exhibits this degree of passion for children and families as well as professionalism in working to collaboratively achieve permanency.”
Angela also fields questions from potential CASA volunteers during pre-service trainings and mentors new CASA volunteers. She is also willing to promote CASA in her community, having appeared on a local television station as a panelist and being featured in a promotional video to raise awareness of CASA volunteerism in the community.
Angela’s commitment to children goes beyond her role as a CASA volunteer. She and her husband are the adoptive parents of three children and she is the author of a children’s book entitled And God Said…See, I Told You So!: A True Story of Faith and Adoption.
