MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THE LIFE OF A CHILD

MAKE A DIFFERENCE
IN THE LIFE OF A CHILD

Our volunteer advocates are court-appointed to cases deemed most in need of individual, dedicated support.  CASA dedicates one advocate to champion one child, or one set of siblings, ensuring that the child’s voice is present in court even if the child is not.  Read some of their stories.

WHY SUPPORT CASA?

WHY SUPPORT CASA?

 

CASA volunteer advocates have provided more than 10,000 hours to over 400 children in Cook County.  At an average of $110 per hour, that’s a savings of $1,100,000 to the State of Illinois.

Our vision is to protect children who have experienced neglect and abuse by providing them a voice in court, a safe and permanent home, and an opportunity to grow, learn and thrive.

Foster Care Should Be Temporary, Not a Way of Life

For 29 years, Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Cook County has been training everyday people to stand up for children who have experienced neglect and abuse in an overwhelmed and extremely under-resourced foster care system.

Without a helping hand from CASA of Cook County Advocates, these children might fall through the cracks and never be given an opportunity to find a place to call home.
