CASA is an acronym for Court Appointed Special Advocate. A Court Appointed Special Advocate is a volunteer trained and supported by an Advocate Supervisor to monitor the court cases of children aged 0 to 21 who have experienced abuse and neglect. CASA volunteers are appointed by a judge in juvenile court to serve as an advocate for the purpose of speaking in the child's best interest.
CASA Kendall County is a member of the National CASA/GAL Association.

CASA Kendall County wishes to thank those who donated to our Bags of Hugs Program!
Often when children are removed from their homes, their favorite things are sometimes left behind. Through this program and generous donors, we are able to provide every child who comes into the program with a backpack and some essential items to help make them more comfortable.
