CASA for Douglas County
CASA for Douglas County trains, empowers, and inspires volunteer advocates to improve the lives of abused and neglected children. A Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) is a community volunteer appointed by a Juvenile Court Judge to represent the best interests of a child in the courtroom and in the community. The desired result is that children be placed in safe, loving homes in which they can thrive.
After training, Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) volunteers are assigned to child welfare cases and write reports directly to the court with recommendations for the child’s best interests.
CASA volunteers have real impact in our community, but we need your help to better serve the kids in our area! On average, kids who have a CASA spend 8 months less in foster care than those without a CASA. Our program succeeds with help from dedicated staff, caring volunteers, and generous donors like you. Contact Jordan Fletcher to see how you can get involved and make a difference to kids in our community.
