How To Help

Donate

Donate today to help a child who has experienced abuse or neglect thrive.

Over 2,000 children come into the Jackson County Family Court system every year.  Jackson County CASA serves just over half of these children annually.  By the end of 2025, we will be serving all of the children in the Jackson County Family Court system due to abuse or neglect. No child should have to wait in the system alone.

CASA Volunteers learn everything they can about the children they serve, their stories, and their unique circumstances. They learn what the child wants and they work on behalf of the child's best interests. Children with a CASA advocate spend less time in the Family Court System, do better in school, and are less likely to experience further abuse or neglect. Your donation today helps us provide CASA advocacy for more children in the Family Court system.

Cumulative donations of $100 or more in a calendar year may be eligible for the Champion for Children Tax Credit for Missouri taxpayers.  Consult your tax professional and see if you qualify here.
