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.



A CASA Volunteer is a trained and committed adult appointed by a judge to serve on cases of child abuse or neglect. CASA's are trained to thoroughly research a child's case and advocate on behalf of the child's best interests. Learn more.
