CASA of the Fox Cities, Inc. advocates in our local courts, with community volunteers, to achieve placement in safe and permanent homes for children who have experienced abuse and neglect.
CASA of the Fox Cities (CASAFC) received its 501(c)3 nonprofit designation in September 2012. A Board of Directors worked to raise funding to hire the agency’s first executive director on Sept. 30, 2013. The first group of 15 advocates was sworn in by Judge John Des Jardins on Nov. 26, 2013. Our first case was appointed in March 2014. In its first year of service, CASAFC served 41 children and swore in a total of 33 advocate volunteers. In 2018, the agency served 169 children and had 98 active volunteers.
CASAFC is a member of the National Court Appointed Special Advocate Association. See www.casaforchildren.org for full details on National CASA.
