Saline County Casa trains community members to advocate for abused and neglected children who are in the court system because of abuse and/or neglect. The advocate then writes a report that will be given to the court on behalf of the child, giving the child a voice in the process.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
About CASA of Saline County, Inc. - Harrisburg

The mission of CASA is to speak for the best interests of abused and neglected children in the courts. We promote and support quality volunteer representation for children to provide each child a safe, permanent, nurturing home.
Every year more than half a million abused and neglected children are in need of safe, permanent, nurturing homes. That's where CASA steps in. CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) was created in 1977 to make sure the abuse and neglect these children originally suffered at home doesn't continue as abuse and neglect at the hands of the system. As trained advocates, CASA volunteers are appointed by judges to be a voice for these children in court. The result is that a child is placed into a safe, loving home where he/she can thrive. It is the CASA vision to provide a volunteer for each and every abused and neglected child who needs one.
