About Us

The Kansas CASA Association (KCA) is a network of 23 community-based programs that recruit, train and support citizen-volunteers to advocate for the best interests of abused and neglected children in courtrooms. The KCA was incorporated in 1991 to enhance the success of local CASA programs so that victims of child abuse and neglect in the court system have volunteer advocates focused on their best interest. KCA has two full-time staff providing an array of services to local programs.

Growth of the Association has benefited local programs through such services as:
Technical assistance
Statewide website management
Volunteer Recruitment and Awareness
Legislative Advocacy
Data Collection
Resource Development and Grants
Assistance with the start-up of new programs

CASA History:
The CASA Movement
In 1977, a Seattle juvenile court judge concerned about making drastic decisions with insufficient information conceived the idea of citizen volunteers speaking up for the best interests of abused and neglected children in the courtroom. From that first program has grown a network of more than 951 CASA and guardian ad litem programs that are recruiting, training and supporting volunteers in 49 states and the District of Columbia.
