Boone County CASA
Make a Difference in a Child's Life Today....

The Boone County Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) Program is a nonprofit organization that trains and supports volunteers to speak and act as advocates for the best interests of children involved in the juvenile court system who have experienced abuse and neglect. With the help of a CASA volunteer, a child is half as likely to languish in foster care and that much more likely to find a safe, permanent, loving home.

Boone County CASA is looking for advocates and board members. If you are interested or have questions, please do not hesitate to reach out. Thank you!

Mission Statement

Boone County CASA's mission is to speak for the best interests of abused and neglected children in court with quality volunteer representation to provide each child with a safe, permanent, nurturing home.

Description

Boone County (IL) is one of the smaller counties but we still have the same mission as larger programs. We began in 1991. We have both men and women as advocates, who must be over 21, have reliable transportation, and pass an extensive background check. All advocates participate in a free 30 hour training program. We are very flexible in training. Our volunteers come from all walks of life, with a variety of backgrounds. It is a very challenging and rewarding role.
