CASA Executive Director Gloria Kelley said CASA Kane County is grateful for the support of Fox Valley Auto Group, whose donation will raise funds that directly impact the lives of children.
“This collaboration will help further the mission of CASA to reach every child in need to find a safe, nurturing and permanent home,” she said.
For more than 30 years, CASA Kane County has been recruiting, training and supervising community volunteers who serve as Court Appointed Special Advocates and the Guardian ad Litem for children in court due to abuse, neglect or private guardianship.
The CASA volunteer acts as the eyes and ears of the judge to help make the best decision for a safe, caring and permanent home for each child. The organization serves 100% of all abuse/neglect and private guardianship cases in the 16th Judicial Circuit of Kane County and has been doing this since 2000.
CASA Kane County’s staff along 200 CASA/GAL volunteers advocate for more than 500 children annually. To learn more, visit https://www.casakanecounty.org/ or 630-232-4484.
