Cass County Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) Program Welcomes Two New Volunteers
The Cass County Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) Program is proud to announce that two new CASA advocates were sworn-in by Judge John Steinheider on June 30, 2017. The new CASA advocates are Karie Kirkland McKinley and Kay McMahon.
There are a total of 20 Cass County children who are under the jurisdiction of the court due to abuse and/or neglect. Children range in age from two to 17 years old. Currently, 13 active CASA advocates are serving these children.
CASA advocates usually work with one case at a time. They get to know the children and write reports for the Judge, making recommendations about what would be best for the child. They become a stable, reliable presence in the child’s life during a very difficult time, and advocate for the child to have a safe and permanent home as quickly as possible.
The Cass County CASA program was started in 2006. CASA advocates are ordinary people doing an extraordinary thing by having an impact on the lives of abused and neglected children. Most volunteers donate about 2 hours per week (or 8-10 hours a month) and all training is provided. A portion of the pre-service training expenses were paid for by a grant from the Nebraska CASA Association and the Victims of Crime Act (VOCA) grant. If you are interested or want more information, please call or e-mail Debbie Green, Volunteer Coordinator at 402-296-9521 or firstname.lastname@example.org or visit our website at www.casscasa.org.
Cass County CASA program is a 501c3 program that is funded by donations, grants, Keno funds and fundraisers.
Additional information can be found at www.casscasa.org , www.nebraskacasa.org or www.casaforchildren.org
