‘Doing from my heart’

Crestview resident Malcolm Parker said Sunday’s event taught him a lot about the issue.

"It opened my eyes a little bit," he said. "You don't always pay attention to what's going on with the children in the community."

Parker said he’s considering volunteering and wants to help spread the word. 

Tammy Hillsman, who has worked with Guardian for the past eight months, said she enjoys speaking on the children’s behalf.

"I just want to be there because whatever situation we step in to, it's a tragedy from the very beginning," she said. "I'm basically there to help them get through it."

 Hillsman said she is working on two cases involving four children. On average, she handles two cases at a time, she said.
