CASA's goal is to raise $1,200 to sponsor a child's advocacy for an entire year right here in Champaign County. 

The problem of abused and neglected children in Champaign County is a serious issue in this climate of underfunded services in Illinois. Over 350 children are currently in the court system because of abuse or neglect, and over 40% of those children are under the age of six. 

Champaign County CASA is unique because we are appointed as the legal representative or GAL for the child, meaning we provide our children with a staff attorney to represent their best interest. Our attorneys solely work on CASA cases closely with our advocates, so our kids get the best legal representation possible. CASA volunteers provide critical information to the judge in order to help make life-changing decisions. Volunteers are trained and recruited by professional CASA staff who have experience dealing with child welfare cases. 

Research demonstrates that children with CASA volunteers are more likely to find a safe, permanent home. They’re also: 

  • Less likely to be bounced from home to home 
  • More likely to have a plan in place for achieving a permanent home
  • More likely to do better in school 

We couldn't do it without you. Thank you for your support!
