Anne Udry
Fairbanks CASA Program Coordinator


Anne joined the Alaska CASA staff in September 2009.  She came to us after spending several years as Program Administrator for the Dartmouth Institute of Arctic Studies. Anne also spent eleven years doing seasonal work in Antarctica in support of scientific field research.

Anne received a Bachelor's degree in Behavioral Science with minors in Psychology and Intercultural Studies. As part of her studies she completed a practicum at an orphanage for street boys in Honduras.  That experience and her training to become a licensed foster parent played a large role in her attraction to the CASA program.

Anne and her husband have two sons; one they fostered and adopted from the child welfare system.

Join Us!

A Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) is a trained community volunteer appointed by a judge to speak up for the best interests of an abused, neglected or abandoned child involved in a juvenile court proceeding. Bringing urgency to a child's needs, both in and out of the courtroom, CASA volunteers advocate for safety, permanence and well-being for children through independent recommendations.

If you are concerned for the well being of children and have a continuing commitment to advocate for a child until a safe and permanent home is obtained — you could be an effective CASA volunteer.

If you are objective and nonjudgmental and are able to interact with people of various educational, economic and ethnic backgrounds — you could be an effective CASA volunteer.
