CASA Volunteer Spotlight: Meet Wendy FrumpKatherine Wells
“Every child deserves to be fought for and to have a voice.”
Wendy has been a volunteer with Porter County CASA for almost two years. She is a stay-at-home mom who does a lot of volunteer mission work in addition to her work as a CASA. Wendy and her husband have seven children, three of whom are adopted. During her time as a foster parent, Wendy noticed that one of her children had a CASA who was not as active as others had been. She said her family learned very quickly how important it was to have an advocate for a child in the court system.
Wendy and her husband have a fun, big family! They love to watch their kids play sports and grow into young adults. One of their children was adopted locally from the LaPorte County foster system; two of their other children were adopted from Ukraine, and the family passionately supports the country. They love to host children in their home to show them the love of Jesus. She says, “Our biological children have grown so much in their faith and empathy towards others by walking this journey together.”
Wendy feels strongly that children need to know that there is someone on their team. Her favorite part of being a CASA is when the children are excited to see her from month to month because she has been a constant in their lives. Although her home is too full to continue fostering, she is happy that she can still continue to advocate for children living in other homes.
We are grateful for Wendy’s hard work with Porter County CASA.
In honor of Rose Butler who was a CASA volunteer and who further supported the mission of CASA as a staff member supervising and mentoring many of our volunteers, we are featuring one CASA volunteer each month who is making a difference in the lives of children in Porter County.
