When a child enters the foster care system, they often feel overwhelmed, trapped in a revolving door of caseworkers, attorneys and judges.
At Sarpy County CASA, we work to be a constant in the lives of more than 400 abused and neglected children in Sarpy County. Our goal is to pair a volunteer with each child who is a ward of the state.
But we need your help!
As a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA), you can help ensure that a child’s needs are being met while they reach a safe, permanent home. CASA volunteers are not foster parents. They are trained volunteers who get to know a child in the foster care system and advocate for their best interests. CASA volunteers must be at least 21 years old and commit to at least one year of advocacy.
Our next training class starts Feb. 8, 2021. The virtual classes run for five weeks and meet on Mondays from 6-9 p.m.
If you would like to volunteer, please fill out an application form, then return it to the CASA office via email, fax or in person. Download the application.
