Dan and Nancy Ladd are being honored as the November volunteer “team” of the month for CASA for Kids of Payne and Logan Counties. Dan and Nancy work as a husband and wife team out of Logan County. The Ladds are business owners and have lived in Guthrie for the last 16 years. They were first introduced to CASA when their daughter was fostering two of their grandchildren. They noticed what a valuable difference CASA made in their daughter’s case and court proceedings. The case moved quicker in the court system and the relationship with the CASA changed things for the better. The Ladds decided to become CASAs, and now see it as a perfect fit for them. They work as a team, writing court reports, visiting with DHS and the families involved. They are currently working their second case and have advocated for nine children. Their three grown children live with their 9 grandchildren in California.
