"To give a child a CASA is to give them a voice. To give them a voice is to give them hope, and to give them hope is to give them the world."
- Pamela Butler
former foster child
Douglas County CASA
Every year in Douglas County, Kansas, dozens of children are removed from their homes and placed under court protection for their own safety. Some of these children are victims of violence, psychological torment, or sexual abuse. Others have been neglected or even abandoned. They are confused and frightened of an uncertain future. Many are placed in foster care. Douglas County CASA is dedicated to making sure these children get the attention they deserve. With the help of specially trained volunteers who advocate for the best interests of these vulnerable children, CASA helps children and teens find safe, permanent and loving homes.
Douglas County CASA provides comprehensive advocacy for abused and neglected children in need of care and under the protection of the court system. Our trained volunteers investigate, facilitate, monitor and mentor. Through compassion and commitment, they are dedicated to be the child's voice through their journey to a safe, loving permanent home.
Mark your calendars now! CASAblanca 2013 will be held on Friday, September 13, 7:30 pm at Liberty Hall.
