Organization Information

Mission Statement

The mission of the National Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) Association, together with its state and local members, is to support and promote court appointed volunteer advocacy so that every abused and neglected child can be safe, establish permanence and have the opportunity to thrive.

Description

Court Appointed Special Advocates
Every year, more than 3 million children nationally are reported abused or neglected. Here in Kearney and Buffalo Counties we see an average of 60 new cases each year. Despite the states' attempts to help, many of these kids become trapped in the court and child welfare maze and can spend their childhood moving from one temporary shelter to another.
What is a CASA Volunteer?
CASA Volunteers are everyday citizens who volunteer their time to be the eyes and ears of the court in abuse and neglect cases to provide the court with an independent report of the facts of the case and to advocate for the best interests of the child.
Studies have shown that once a CASA volunteer is assigned to an abused or neglected child, the child is much more likely to receive vital services such as health care, education, and therapy. By getting involved as a CASA volunteer, you can help create healthier families and communities - and change the course of a child's life.
