Kearney/Buffalo County CASA

KEARNEY — Kearney native Margot Icenogle-Larsen was appointed the new Executive Director of the Kearney/Buffalo County CASA program on May 14th, 2019. 

Icenogle-Larsen has been a Kearney/Buffalo County CASA supervisor since 2014.  CASA is an organization which advocates for the needs and best interests for abused and neglected children involved in the court system. A 2003 University of Nebraska at Kearney Criminal Justice graduate, Icenogle-Larsen has 16 years of experience in the field of social work. She began her career at Girls and Boys Town in Grand Island. In 2005, she joined the Department of Health and Human Services as a Child Protection and Safety Worker, working ongoing abuse and neglect cases, and served on the Health and Human Services Abuse and Neglect Hotline. In 2010, Icenogle-Larsen entered the private sector providing family visitation supervision, family support services, and drug testing. Icenogle-Larsen has a calling to help be a voice for children. “CASA has always had a special place in my heart,” said Icenogle-Larsen upon advancing to Executive Director.  “In every position I’ve held, I’ve seen a great need for children to have a CASA Volunteer provide them with a voice in the court system.”  

Become a CASA Volunteer; there is a new training class starting in August 2019!

Every day in this country, 1,900 children become victims of abuse or neglect, and four of them will die.  Kearney/Buffalo County CASA is a local member of the National Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) for children network.  We recruit, train, and support local volunteers to advocate for the best interests of local abused and neglected children in courtrooms and communities.  Volunteer advocates - empowered directly by the courts - offer judges the critical information they need to ensure that each child's rights and needs are being attended to while in foster care.  Volunteers stay with children until they are placed in loving permanent homes.  For many abused children, a CASA volunteer is the only constant adult presence in their lives.
