The Team

Who We Are


Crissi Kolb

Executive Director

Crissi joined CASA For Kids in January 2019. Prior to her role as the Executive Director, Crissi worked as the Volunteer Supervisor in Preston County. Crissi 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 reunification as a family. Working within that system she witnessed firsthand how the child/ren’s needs could go un-addressed and wishes could go unmet. Crissi saw a need in the community and knew she needed to be the one to fulfill it. Crissi joined CASA For Kids with the goal to give every child that found themselves in the foster care system, at no fault of their own, a voice.
