About CASA

Saline County CASA trains community members to advocate for abused and neglected children who are in the court system because of abuse and/or neglect.  Saline County CASA currently has 15 advocates serving 73 children.  The advocates speak up for these children with the court system, social service agencies, and others involved in the child’s life.

Saline County CASA has a Board of Directors consisting of 8 community members who volunteer their time to the program.  These 8 members make the by-laws and take care of fundraising efforts to support the program.  The Saline County CASA Board of Directors meet once a month and call speciall meetings when necessary.

To reach our goal and insure that every child receives a safe home, CASA would like to have an advocate for every abused and neglected child in Saline County. Currently 73 out of the 127 children in the court system are being served. New advocates are needed in order to assure that every child has a safe, permanent home as quickly as possible.  To become an advocate or make a donation, contact our office at 618 253-3355 or any member of the board.

What is a CASA Advocate?

A CASA Advocate is a community member who gives of their time to ensure that abused and neglected children receive a safe, nurturing, permanent home as quickly as possible.  They do this by gathering facts, discerning options, and preparing reports for the court.  They also assist the court and social agencies in eliminating delays, advancing the child’s case in a timely fashion, and monitoring the case until a final outcome is achieved.

To achieve our goal of assisting every child in the court system, more advocates are needed.  To become an advocate, one must pass a preliminary screening process, complete a 30 hour training program, and observe 6 hours of court procedures.
