Nebraska CASA Association is a network of 21 local programs in Nebraska serving 43 counties. We recruit, screen, train and support Court Appointed Special Advocates. Those advocates are volunteers - just like you - who are appointed by a judge to speak for the well-being of abused and neglected children.
More than 2,000 abused and neglected children in Nebraska are waiting for their CASA volunteer...Are you ready to change a child's life?
Your donation can help make our dream of a CASA for every child in Nebraska possible.
