Have you ever wanted to make a difference for a child?
As a CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) you could be the difference for a child who has been abused or neglected and is under the care of Child Welfare.
CASA of Jackson County recruits and trains everyday citizen volunteers to become child advocates, CASAs. We devote our resources to training CASA volunteers, supporting them to effectively advocate for children’s best interests and to improving outcomes for abused and neglected children in Jackson County. A CASA provides a powerful voice on behalf of the child whose needs might otherwise go unmet.
Our remarkable force of 170 CASAs currently advocate for more than 350 children in Jackson County, yet 300 still remain on our waiting list. If you think you want to give a child a voice, we need you. If you want to help but don’t think you can be a CASA, we still need you. We cannot do this work alone; it is only through the selfless efforts of community volunteers and financial supporters that we are able to positively impact these children’s lives.
I hope you will consider joining us in this meaningful work on behalf of children.
