About Casa

Our Mission: CASA Kendall County is a nonprofit membership organization, which advocates for the best interest of children who have experienced abuse and neglect. We train and support dedicated community volunteers who serve to protect a child’s right to a safe and permanent home. We are the child’s voice in court.

Our Vision: We believe that every child has the right to grow up in a safe, nurturing and permanent home, and deserves the support and involvement of their community to make this all possible.

We are pleased to share our organization’s 
annual report for 2023.
