More than 800 children live in foster homes without a Court Appointed Special Advocate® (CASA) in Winnebago County. Imagine a child being removed from her parents care and placed in a new home, with new rules, new sounds, and new smells. Worse yet, imagine how that child would feel having to change schools and make new friends while knowing her mom and dad are in court, in front of a judge who will decide her future.
CASA volunteers know the children they serve, their story and unique circumstances and they have their best interests in mind. Having a CASA by a child’s side can be the difference between despair and hope. Your donation today helps the cost of CASA advocacy for a child by finding a safe, loving and permanent home for that child to live in.
