Tribute to Our Volunteers

Micki Levine was sworn in May 2013. Micki has had five  cases. Every now and then GAL staff is confronted with an emergency. One day in preparing for court the next day I realized there was a case on the calendar involving triplets that we had not planned on. We simply were not prepared for court and that was a problem. I called Micki in a panic and asked if she could help me out by visiting these children “Right Now”. Micki was up to the task. Inside of four hours Micki  contacted all of the caregivers, visited three babies in three different placements and delivered a court report to me by 4:00 pm. She was awesome. For her trouble that day I assigned her a case involving what else…triplets. Additionally, Micki has had the same case for three years where she zealously advocates for a permanent home for a teenage boy. 

Micki is a retired CPA and uses those organizational skills to stay right on top of her cases each and every month.  Micki’s real strength is that she questions everything and makes everyone accountable for their actions by explaining “why.”  That’s a good skill to have in this work. Always  question the process. She attends every meeting and visits the children monthly.  Micki Levine is a strong advocate for the children in her charge. 

 Quote from a Volunteer

  “I can only hope the families I’ve encountered, children and parents, have gained as much from my input as I’ve gained by knowing and helping them.” - Jean Snider, GAL since 1998
