Children with a CASA
Kids on our waitlist
Kids achieved permanency 2021-2022
In Douglas County, CASAs have been making a significant impact on the lives of children for over 25 years. CASA Volunteer Advocates are dedicated and passionate about the work they do. They are experts that go above and beyond every day to make sure a child’s voice is amplified in court. On April 20th, 2023, CASA for Douglas County hosted the first Volunteer Appreciation Dinner to recognize and thank the many Volunteer Advocates who give their time, energy, and heart to serving children involved in the child welfare system in our community.
This blog discusses the issue of disproportionality in the child welfare system, particularly when it comes to Black and Brown children. It highlights the importance of diverse Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) volunteers who can provide cultural competence and understanding of the unique challenges faced by these children and their families. The document also includes information on CASA for Douglas County's efforts to host recruiting events within the Black community to encourage more diverse volunteers to join the organization.
CASA for Douglas County is excited to announce Pam & Lyle Knox as the 3rd Annual CASA Classic chairs!
Join Pam & Lyle and support CASA for Douglas County as we take a swing at providing a CASA Volunteer for every child impacted by the Child Welfare System who is in need of consistent support.
CASA Volunteers impact our whole community.
I love being a CASA!
I love being a CASA because I’ve gotten to know my CASA kids so well in the past two years and it always makes me happy to be able to give them a little break from the craziness of life and just hang out with them!
