Mrs. Chastain is very complimentary of our Assistant District Attorney’s efforts in working with CASA to put kids first. “The CASA volunteer focuses on one child and family, and often is the only person who has the time to invest to know the family’s whole story,” Susan notes.
Mrs. Chastain and her husband are retired and have lived the last two years in Stillwater. They have two grown daughters. Mrs. Chastain continues to have relationships with the children she has met through her CASA cases. She has seen one particular child through four foster homes and finally adoption. Susan continues contact with this child by attending birthday parties, exchanging phone calls and Christmas cards.
