Jackson County CASA Description

Mission: Our mission is the be a child's voice in court.  We recruit, train and support lay volunteers who act as advocates on behalf of the best interest of abused and neglected children.

Role: Jackson County CASA was founded by the Kansas City chapter of the national Council of Jewish Women to ensure that abused and neglected children in our metropolitan area are given a voice in Court.  We have two goals: (1) to secure a safe, permanent home for the child; and (2) to advocate for appropriate medical, educational, and therapeutic resources while the child is under Court jurisdiction.
