Howard first joined the agency as a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) in 2004 and has advocated for six teens boys during his tenure as a CASA.
In 2007, Howard joined the board of directors, bringing with him 40 years of experience as an attorney, CPA and CFO. Howard is currently serving in his 12th year as a board member.
