TWENTY YEARS OF COMMITMENT TO FOSTER YOUTH
Fillmore County CASA is a community-based non-profit organization dedicated to training and supporting court-appointed special advocates who serve Fillmore County’s abused and neglected children.
Since our founding in 1996, we have trained multiple CASA volunteers and empowered everyday citizens in Fillmore County to become officers of the court, serving as advocates for children in foster care.
Our volunteers help the children by advocating for safe and permanent homes, addressing urgent needs related to healthcare and education, and developing permanent connections within communities to ensure that support will continue even after a youth has left foster care.
We are committed to providing one-on-one volunteer advocacy and mentorship for these children. They face huge odds including mental health issues, traumatic emotional disturbances and educational challenges that keep more than half of Nebraska’s foster children from graduating high school.
The National CASA network has grown to more than 950 CASA member programs across the nation with more than 70,000 men and women serving as CASA or Guardian ad Litem volunteers.
A CASA helps fight against the odds, increasing the chances for these children to lead a healthy, happy life in a safe and permanent home.
