Capital City CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) trains and supervises community volunteers to advocate for the best interests of abused and neglected children in Cole County, many of whom are unable to live safely in their homes. Appointed by the Juvenile Court Judge, each CASA volunteer is assigned just one case at a time, providing the careful, individualized attention that every child deserves.
Children who have a CASA volunteer have an invaluable ally to stand by them, a strong advocate who will collect information about their individual history, collaborate with other system professionals, and present their findings and recommendations in all court proceedings for as long as the case remains open.
Your contributions are an essential part of providing this necessary service to the most vulnerable children in our community.
With your support, Capital City CASA can recruit, train, and support volunteers who advocate for the best interests of abused and neglected children in foster care. Last year it cost CASA approximately $1300 per child to ensure they had a qualified, trained, and effective voice advocating on their behalf.
CASA provides ongoing training, support services for volunteers, supplies for children’s needs, and community outreach to ensure the organization can facilitate relationships that ensure the best needs of our community’s children are being met.
$100 a month will help Capital City CASA meet the needs of one more child.
$250 a month will help train one new CASA volunteer.
$1200 a year will provide a CASA volunteer to a child for one year.
