CASA Kane County
CASA Kane County is a nonprofit, volunteer organization that advocates for the best interests of abused and neglected children within the Juvenile Court system.
CASA Kane County recruits, trains and supervises community volunteers who serve as Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASAs) for children in court due to abuse, neglect or private guardianship. They are appointed by the Juvenile and Probate Court Judges to be the Guardian ad Litem (GAL) for children under the age of 21. CASA/GAL volunteers spend time with the children, families, teachers, therapists and medical professionals to collect information that helps the Judge make the best interest decision for a safe, caring and permanent home for each child. CASA Kane County's 300 active CASA/GAL volunteers advocate for nearly 600 children annually!
