Mission and History
CASA of McHenry County’s mission is to draw from community resources to provide well-trained volunteers who will advocate for abused and neglected children in our court system, provide needed information to the court, and help develop a more effective juvenile court process.
CASA of McHenry County, founded in 2005, provides trained volunteers to advocate for child victims of abuse and neglect in Juvenile Court and in the foster care system. CASA of McHenry County provides caring volunteers who make a life-long difference for children.
These children have become involved in the Juvenile Court system because they are unable to live at home. Not because of something they did, but because their parents can’t, or won’t, take care of them.
Volunteers are appointed by a judge and assigned to one case at a time, serving as an independent voice for abused and neglected children in court. Volunteers believe every child deserves to grow up in a safe and permanent home and they stay with a case until this goal is achieved.
CASA of McHenry County currently advocates for over 200 court-involved children of abuse and neglect.
