League Supports CASA

Learn more about CASA of Douglas County — Court-appointed special advocates for Children

The need for CASA advocates is greater than ever. Their website says:

When a child enters the foster care system because his or her home is no longer safe, a judge may appoint a committed volunteer to help. That volunteer is called a Court Appointed Special Advocate, or CASA. CASA volunteers are screened, highly trained and then appointed by judges to represent and advocate for a child’s best interests in the child protection system.

And you can become one.9345951

CASA of Douglas County, Inc. provides valuable volunteer advocacy for abused children. CASA volunteers serve as the “eyes and ears” for the judges in child welfare cases. This includes researching each child’s situation and making objective recommendations to help them reclaim their childhoods from abuse and neglect. CASA volunteers are frequently the only stable presence in these children’s lives.

Or there are other ways to be supportive and help kids.
See their web page that says you can also choose to do shorter-term projects, if you can’t commit to two-years as an advocate.

Or, you can Donate.
