Cass County Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) Program Welcomes Three New Volunteers

The Cass County Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) Program is proud to announce that three new CASA Volunteers were sworn-in by Judge John Steinheider on February 17, 2015.  A brief reception was held following the swearing in to wish to the new CASA Volunteers well in their advocacy for Cass County's abused and neglected children.  The new CASA volunteers are Cathi Bond, Heidi Cline and Jen Rackley.

There are a total of 19 Cass County children who are under the jurisdiction of the court because of abuse and/or neglect.  Children range in age from two to 19 years old.  Currently, ten active CASA volunteers are advocating for these children.

CASA volunteers 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 2005.  CASA volunteers 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 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.  If you are interested or want more information, please call or email Angie Neumiller, Program Director at 402-296-9520, or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. 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.  Our next fundraiser will be April 18 at Slattery's Vintage Estates from 5-10pm with Silver Wings Band as entertainment.
