CASA For Douglas County Charity Profile

CASA, which stands for Court Appointed Special Advocates, is a charitable organization that provides a voice for abused and neglected children within the court system.

CASA was established in the Omaha area in 1998 upon the urgency of area judges. The idea of CASA first originated in the Seattle area, when a juvenile court judge felt that he was not sufficiently informed on a case involving a child. CASA was created under the premise that there must be an advocate for children within the court system--someone who will fight and keep the child's best interests at heart. It is the CASA volunteer that helps judges make good decisions on behalf of these abused children.

Between parents, foster parents, social workers, lawyers and guardian ad litems, a child within the court system is constantly being faced with change and instability. CASA volunteers provide a sense of permanency as they are the one figure within the court system that remains committed to the child.
