Give a Child a Voice
More than 1,600 Omaha children are entangled in the foster care system because of abuse and neglect. CASA Volunteers provide an innovative, cost-effective approach to a very urgent crisis.
Your donation helps ensure that children who have experienced abuse or neglect grow up in safe, permanent, and loving homes.
- It costs $1,013 per year to provide a CASA volunteer to help a child navigate their way to a safe, permanent home.
- It costs taxpayers more than $43,000 per year to provide child welfare services for children in foster care.
- Donor dollars are optimally leveraged because funds are used to train and support volunteers who provide support for the children through donated time.
Your one-time or recurring donation gives children who have experienced abuse or neglect a powerful voice in court and in our community.
CASA for Douglas County partners with a network of child-serving agencies in our community to distribute Project Hope Packs, containing essential hygiene and comfort items and serve as a sign of hope to boost children’s spirits and promote dignity and resilience in the face of adversity.
