The Team

Who We Are


Crissi Kolb

Executive Director

Crissi joined CASA For Kids in January 2019. She came to CASA after working within the foster care system for over 10 years empowering parents, through parenting education and adult life skills classes, to make decisions that are in the best interest of their children with the goal of being reunified as a family. Working within that system she witnessed firsthand the need for one-on-one advocacy for children in the foster care system. She saw a need in the community and knew she needed to be the one to fulfill it.

Crissi is passionate about being the best wife/mom for her family, lives for Pumpkin Spice Latte season and has a weakness for any and all things sweet.
