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.
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.
