When a child enters the child welfare system because his or her home is no longer safe due to abuse or neglect, a judge may appoint a committed volunteer to advocate for the best interest of the child in court and other settings. That volunteer is called a Court Appointed Special Advocate, or CASA.
A donation to Illinois CASA is an investment in Illinois’ future. With your gift to Illinois CASA, you can help the CASA program(s) both in your community AND around the state to provide the very best volunteer advocacy for children removed from their homes due to abuse and/or neglect.
Illinois CASA wants to ensure that our CASA community has access to the training resources you need whenever and wherever you need them. We offer online and in-person training opportunities to help give you with the most up-to-date tools and resources in the ways that work best for you.
