Welcome to CASA Kendall County

CASA is an acronym for Court Appointed Special Advocates. A Court Appointed Special Advocate is a volunteer trained and supported by CASA staff to monitor the court cases of children aged birth to eighteen who have been determined to be abused, neglected and/or dependent by the juvenile court system. CASA volunteers are appointed by a judge to serve as an advocate for the purpose of speaking in the child's best interest.

 

Our Misssion:

CASA Kendall County is a non-profit organization that recruits, trains and supports volunteer citizen advocates to effectively speak to the best interests of abused, neglected and dependent children in Kendall County's juvenile court system because every child has the right to a safe, permanent and nurturing home.

Bags of Hugs

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.
