Organization Profile

Please take just a couple of minutes and watch the video about CASA. CASA Connection is the local Court Appointed Special Advocate program covering Platte and Colfax Counties. CASA Connection recruits, screens, trains and supervises community volunteers to advocate in the best interest of abused and neglected children that have been removed from thier homes and placed in foster care. Our CASA volunteer advocates offer judges the critical information they need to ensure each child's rights and needs are being met while in foster care.

Project Description

Currently, we are only advocating for approximately 45% of the children referred to our program by the court system. Our goal is to advocate for 100% of the abused/neglected children referred to our program by the juvenile courts.  The funds we raise May 19th will help us recruit additional volunteers so we can serve MORE CHILDREN.
