Cass County CASA - Court Appointed Special AdvocatesCASA gives kids a voice!


Cass County Court Appointed Special Advocate

Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) provides "best interest" advocacy to children for ages of birth to 19, who have been removed from their homes for abuse or neglect. CASA volunteers are citizens appointed by our judge, who are committed to ensuring that every child has the right to a safe and permanent home, to oversee abuse and neglect cases involving children in Cass County.

New Volunteer Sworn to Advocate for CASA Children

Peggy Kowalczyk was sworn in as a CASA advocate by Judge John Steinheider on August 31, 2018. As an advocate, she will get to know the child she advocates for and make recommendations to the Judge about what would be best for the child. She will become a stable, reliable presence in the child’s life during a very difficult time.
