2018 August Volunteer of the Month
Anna Hernandez

Kearney/Buffalo County CASA honored Anna Hernandez of Kearney for her advocacy for abused and neglected children.  Jessica Knoell, CASA Volunteer Supervisor, said, “Ms. Hernandez has been with CASA since November 2017 and has been doing an incredible job.  Ms. Hernandez has two cases that she works hard to advocate for.  She writes great CASA reports, is not afraid to ask questions, and stays in contact with the children and the team.”

Anna Hernandez said, “I became a CASA to help kids and also in hopes that I could start a career working with children.  I would like to tell people that CASA is a great place to volunteer, not only do you get to meet amazing children but you get to become a role model for the kids who truly need a strong one."

Ms. Hernandez wants everyone to remember, “Love one another especially our children, they are our future.”

Heather Crowley

Kearney/Buffalo County CASA is proud to honor Heather Crowley of Kearney for her advocacy for abused and neglected children. Heather has been a CASA Volunteer for 9 months and served on one case. Heather is a true asset to the four children she serves. Heather has worked very hard to get to know her family. When in crisis, the family will call Heather for support and guidance. Heather is a strong member of the family team. Her knowledge and input is has been very valuable to the team and helped them to make good decisions for the children and family.

“Deciding to Volunteer was not a question deciding where to volunteer was the question! I wanted to volunteer for something that I truly believed I could make a difference and an impact which led me to CASA, I have truly been blessed with the families and children I have worked with I know that volunteering for CASA has very much made an impact in my life showing me that the time in is not what’s important it’s the HEART that is put in that makes the difference.”

Kearney/Buffalo County CASA

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.

Another great way to help abused and neglected children from your community is to donate.  We are always looking for children's books and stuffed animals, printer paper, and funding to keep the office open so we can train and supervise our wonderful volunteer advocates.
