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.
