I am for the Child.
CASA for Douglas County is a nonprofit organization that trains and supports volunteers to represent the best interests of victims of child abuse, neglect, and severe domestic conflict. CASA volunteers are appointed by judges to be a voice for these children in court and in the community. The desired result is that children be placed in safe, loving homes where they can thrive.
CASA FOR DOUGLAS COUNTY MISSION STATEMENT
CASA for Douglas County, as a member of both the National and Nebraska CASA Associations, advocates for the best interests of abused and neglected children in Douglas County Juvenile Court and foster care proceedings through the use of trained, court appointed, citizen volunteers. These volunteers provide a “voice” for the children while ensuring that they are safe, that their needs are being met and that efforts are made to expedite permanent homes for these children.
