At Winnebago County CASA, we strive to empower a community to volunteer as advocates for the children that cannot speak for themselves. To ensure the wishes and needs of each child are met, our volunteers build a relationship with them and work with the family, schools, and medical providers to determine the best interest of the child. Be their voice by joining CASA.

Our volunteers at CASA are everyday heroes. They serve as advocates to provide the consistency and stability that abused or neglected children need as they navigate the court system. Deb McGinnis, was our Advocate of the Year in 2017. Deb became a CASA in 2014 and has served five families with a total of 14 kids, so far! Her favorite part about being a CASA is the beautiful people she's met along the way and knowing that she can help someone in need. You, too, can change a child's story.

Volunteers can improve children’s well-being and help them reach a permanent home. We ask that you think about the positive impact you could have on a child who needs a CASA. Children who have a CASA: have a sense of acceptance, are less likely to develop deviant behavior, have a positive attitude toward the future, value achievement, work with others, and develop the ability to work out conflicts. If you have 5-10 hours a month and live in Winnebago County, you could make a lasting impact. Give us a call: 815-319-6880
