Full-time Probation Officer. Part-time Wish Granter

Probation Officer III Darla Brockus makes wishes come true.

For nine years, she has volunteered as a Wish Granter for the Make A Wish (MAW) Foundation Orange County and Inland Empire. In more complex terms Brockus is in charge of organizing and bringing a sick child’s wish to reality. She goes to the child’s home or hospital room to speak with them and their family to determine their ultimate wish. When it is time for the wish to come true, she helps throw a wish party to reveal all the details of the wish. She also follows up with the recipient after the wish to make sure everything went well. During her time as a volunteer, she has been involved with more than 150 wishes. “I love it! I have done shopping sprees, meet and greets, superhero wishes, a military wish, a police officer wish, Disney wishes, computer wishes, room re-do’s, a kid who wrote his own book and parties for families. "I even organized a Quinceañera,” said Brockus, who has been with the Probation Department for almost 18 years.
