Mission Statement

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.

Description

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.

Would you recommend Prairie CASA?

The person listed on this site has NO business being involved with children in ANY way. Obviously this organization doesn't do background checks on their volunteers, which is sad, because people like her do nothing but make things harder for kids. Not even 2 years ago this woman tried to run over a 10 year old boy on a bike with her car. It is well known in the community where she lives that she has severe mental problems and is a pathological liar. She was also just recently fired for misconduct from a job she had working with kids at the elementary school. This organization needs to be aware of the "real" person this individual is, she is not the person she wants people to believe she is, she is just the opposite.
