EVERY CHILD HAS A CHANCE — IT’S YOU.®
Every year hundreds of children in our community enter the child welfare system. These children have several people coming in and out of their lives; foster parents, social workers, Guardians, ad litem, and the list goes on. Our mission is to provide each child who has experienced neglect and abuse with a Court Appointed Special Advocate. This consistent, trained, caring adult can ensure the child’s needs are being met during this critical time in their life and look out for the child’s best interests.
CASA’s Ribbon Cutting
CASA of the Fox Cities celebrates 10 years of serving our community in our new – larger office space.
Join us for our ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate on May 19th!
Take a tour of our offices on The Pathway of Hope, following a child’s journey through the Child Welfare System.
Fostering Futures helps youth prepare for exiting the child welfare system, creating skills to counter drop out, unemployment, and homelessness rates. It works by having a caring volunteer trained with evidence-based practices, and a one-on-one relationship with a transitioning youth.
Advocate for Children
A Court Appointed Special Advocate is volunteer who steps alongside a child who has experienced abuse or neglect. They spend time weekly with their CASA children getting to know them and learning all they can.
CASA’s write regular court reports so the judges can get a complete picture of the children’s world. This helps them make decisions that are in the children’s best interest.
Strengthening Families & Communities
It is our goal to see each child reach permanency as quickly and safely as possible. Research shows that the presence of one supportive adult in a child’s life can reduce the long-term impact of childhood trauma. By having a CASA in a child’s life they re-learn how to form an attachment bond. Through the presence of their advocates support, and recommending needed services, we are helping to stop the cycle of generational trauma. Breaking the cycle will help our community to grow stronger over future generations.
At CASA of the Fox Cities we create a welcoming and inclusive environment as we serve LGBTQIA+ youth and families.
