What We Do
CASA for Douglas County trains, empowers, and inspires volunteer advocates to improve the lives of abused and neglected children. CASA Volunteers are appointed by juvenile court judges to be a voice for children in the courtroom and in the community. Volunteers visit with the child monthly, attend a monthly meeting with case professionals, attend periodic court hearings, and advocate for services that help the child grow and thrive. The desired result is that children be placed in safe, permanent, and loving homes.
There are over 1,500 children in the child welfare system in Douglas County. At the moment, only 30% of these children are appointed a CASA Volunteer. Children deserve someone who will be by their side when they need it most. YOU can make an impact in a child's life. Can we count on you to help us serve more children in need of an advocate?
