Friends of CASA is an auxiliary organization of CASA for Douglas County. It is comprised of community members committed to improving the lives of abused and neglected children.
Friends of CASA will:
- Assist in fundraising efforts for the benefit of CASA for Douglas County
- Enhance public awareness and understanding of CASA for Douglas County, a nonprofit agency providing advocacy to children in the foster care system
- Engage in special projects supporting youth, advocates and staff.
Project Hope Pack is our signature project. We distribute backpacks full of necessities and comfort items to children ages 3-18 who are taken out of crisis situations. Hope Packs provide a child a sense of comfort and normalcy in a time that is marked by extreme instability.
