For more than 30 years, CASA of Cook County has provided a voice for thousands of children in the Cook County child protection court system who have experienced abuse and neglect. With its group of trained, dedicated volunteers, CASA of Cook County researches cases and provides valuable information which child protection @court judges rely on to make the best decisions about children’s futures. CASA dedicates one volunteer to advocate for one child or family of children, ensuring that the child’s voice is present in court even if the child is not.

The need for volunteer advocates is great: in Cook County there are 5,800 children in the foster care system but CASA of Cook County only has the resources to serve 5% of these children. It is CASA of Cook County’s goal to continuously increase the number of children in care it serves by helping to provide them with a safe and permanent home.
