Linda Stambaugh | 2022 National Crime Victims' Service Awards

Linda Stambaugh is a Court-Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) for the Fourth Circuit Court of South Dakota. A champion for children who have been abused and neglected, Ms. Stambaugh was appointed to her first case 9 days after completing her pre-service training. The case involved four siblings, between the ages of 2−6, who had been neglected by their biological parents. Ms. Stambaugh went above and beyond her volunteer advocate role during the 1.5 years the case was open. Her steadfast dedication helped stop the cycle of child abuse and neglect for these four children and set them on a path where they can safely heal and grow.

Linda Stambaugh received the Volunteer for Victims Award. Visit the OVC Gallery for more information about her work to support victims of crime.
