Jackson County CASA was founded by the Kansas City chapter of the National Council of Jewish Women to ensure that abused and neglected children in our metropolitan area are given a voice in Court.  We have two goals: (1) to secure a safe, permanent home for the child; and, (2) to advocate for appropriate medical, educational, and therapeutic resources while the child is under Court jurisdiction.

CASA’s children are exposed to substance abuse, criminal behavior, violence, unstable housing arrangements, poor support systems, inconsistent health care, and the presence of mental health issues. Most CASA children live in temporary placement facilities, foster homes, with relatives, or in treatment facilities.  More than 68% of the children we serve are minorities.  Nearly all are indigent.

Since 1983, Jackson County CASA has been providing effective guardian ad litem services to these children by recruiting, training, and supporting CASA Volunteer Advocates.  Working as a team with our CASA Case Supervisors and CASA Staff Attorneys, our heroic CASA volunteers help these children navigate the maze of the child welfare and Family Court systems and work to find them a safe, permanent home.
