CASA Volunteer Training 
Classes Forming Now! 
Do you want to be trained to advocate for abused or neglected children? A Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) volunteer is a stable, reliable adult who ensures the child's needs for safety and permanence are met. Our CASA's provide critical information to the Judge so that a more informed decision can be made for the child.
Our November 2018 CASA training class is forming now. If you are interested in attending training, please contact Alli Zuel at 913.715.4033.
