About

We are recruiting concerned and caring individuals who would like to be a voice for children who are wards of the court as the result of child abuse or neglect.

If you can commit 8-10 hours a month for the next two years to help a child in need, then you should consider becoming a CASA volunteer advocate.

We provide training, support and supervision for persons who may become the one stable, responsible positive adult in a child's life as he or she navigates the child welfare system. Our CASAs investigate, facilitate, monitor and advocate on behalf of kids in foster care.

We work on behalf of kids and their best interests.

We advocate for children in the 13th Judicial Circuit, Boone and Callaway Counties.
