Cass County CASA works with children, whom are abused, neglected and often find
themselves lost in the court system. CASA advocates are appointed by the Judge. The
advocates build a relationship with a child and speak on the child’s behalf as they make
recommendations to the court. The following snippet sums up what CASA is really
about: “I am for the child who’s had seven addresses in a single year. Because
she is in foster care. Because her Father abused her. Because her Mother could
not believe her. That is the child I am for. Because if I am, she will be half as likely
to languish in foster care, and that much more likely to find a safe, permanent
home. I am a volunteer child Advocate.”
Since April 2015, 16 volunteers and two staff have advocated for 48 children. Six
children have been adopted and 15 children have been reunified with their parents. 26
more children cases have been opened. Through the efforts of its volunteers, Cass
County CASA has saved the county approximately $22,150.
