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 18 advocates serving 64 children.  There are 25 on the waiting list for a CASA.  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 special 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 who enters the Saline County Juvenile Court System. New advocates are needed!  To become an advocate or make a donation, contact our office at 618 253-3355 or contact 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 become an advocate, one must pass a preliminary screening process, complete a 30 hour training program, and observe 6 hours of court procedures. We need your help! Call today 618-253-3355.
