CASA of Northeast Oklahoma is pleased to announce Pam Beazer has been selected as CASA Volunteer of the Month for April.
Beazer has been a CASA volunteer for almost three years, serving three children on three cases. Beazer says of her work with CASA, “This is the most rewarding job. I get to help children by advocating for their best interest.”
Beazer has lived in Claremore for the past 40 years. She has three sons ages 35, forever 26, and 18 and 5 treasured grandchildren. Beazer also volunteers for Light of Hope. Beazer has seen her share of heartache.
On August 27, 2018 she tragically lost her son, Tyler. He left behind two little boys ages 3 and 6 – whom were his world. Beazer was encouraged to throw herself into something Tyler would love, discovered CASA, and became an amazing volunteer.
Beazer’s Advocate Coordinator, Sandra Rains, said of Beazer, “Pam has been a Rogers County Volunteer since 2018. Pam has a heart for the work we do as CASAs. She is very good at relating and working with people. She truly cares about the families and wants to see them be successful in correcting the conditions so their children can be returned to them.”
