Advocate Spotlight: Steve White
Steve White has been a CASA volunteer since 2015 and worked with nine children in the child welfare system. Unsurprisingly, Steve is still in touch with one of the first youths for whom he advocated, who is now an adult. He is currently advocating for three cases and recently helped secure a bicycle for one of his CASA youths (the child later sent him a thank-you letter with a drawing).
Steve is a world traveler and a former industrial engineer. Additionally, he has also worked in addiction recovery for over thirty years, helping people overcome their substance abuse issues. Steve has served his community in myriad ways, including the Peace Corps, early childhood education, various drug and alcohol programs, providing youths with living skills, and as a volunteer probation officer.
Steve is qualified to provide us training in basically any area and can be found at various CASA events, sharing his wisdom and experience with other CASA volunteers. Steve is currently a White Salmon resident, and, if he wasn’t already cool enough in all his experiences and travels, you can catch him riding around the Gorge on his motorcycle.
