CASA children are the truest victims – abused or neglected in their homes, by a parent or caretaker. They have done nothing wrong and deserve all the help our community can give them. The ultimate goal is to find a safe, permanent home for each child. CASA volunteers, who are appointed by the Juvenile Abuse & Neglect Court Judge to act as Guardians ad litem, advocate for abused and neglected children during court proceedings. Recommendations are made to the Judge about what is believed to be in the best interests of the children.
Please join us for this fun-filled night to help support the children who are in great need of a CASA volunteer. There are currently more than 1,200 open cases of abuse and neglect in Winnebago County.
If you’re interested in becoming a CASA volunteer, please contact the CASA office at 815-319-6880 or WinnebagoCountyCASA.org. Training sessions are held throughout the year.
