Court Appointed Special Advocates for Children in Northeast Nebraska

We advocate for children in the juvenile court system in Norfolk and Northeast Nebraska from birth through age 18 because of abuse and/or neglect.

CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) volunteers are well-trained and speak in court for the best interest of abused and neglected children. These children are in the court system due to no fault of their own. All of the children are victims of child abuse and child neglect.

CASA volunteers are appointed to a case by the judge and become advocates to those minors in court. The volunteer's goal is to provide a carefully researched background of the child to help the court make a sound decision about the child's future. Each home placement case is as unique as the child involved. The CASA volunteer researches the child's best interests to stay with his or her parents or guardians, be placed in foster care or adopted. The CASA volunteer makes a recommendation on placement and follows through on the case until it is permanently resolved. CASA volunteers are often the only stable factor in an often frightening and difficult ordeal for a child.
