Our Mission
The mission of CASA of Shawnee County, Inc. is to utilize volunteers to advocate for the best interest of children and youth involved in the court system.

 

Our Purpose
The purpose of this advocacy is to provide a voice for children in an effort to have informed and expedient decisions made about their futures.

Only about 35% of Children in Need of Care in Shawnee County have an advocate assigned to their case. There simply are not enough volunteers nor funding to provide the advocacy needed. Of that 35%, we still have over 80 children waiting for an advocate to be assigned to their case.

 

Frequently Asked Questions & Additional Information:

Is photography allowed in the homes? No cameras, cell phones, or video equipment allowed.

Do children need a ticket for the Tour? Children 10 and over are welcome to tour the homes and are required to have a ticket.


Where does the Tour start? There is not a designated start. You may start the Tour at any of the homes and may spread out your visit over both days. Home locations are printed on the tickets or below in the downloadable e-booklet.

Where can I purchase a ticket? Online through our website, Porterfield's Flowers & Gifts, Red Door Home Store, Blooms on Boswell, Topeka Hy-Vee, The Linen Tree, or at the door. 

Can I volunteer my time even if I’m not a CASA volunteer? Absolutely! We are always looking for help during the Tour. You or your group may contact us today!

You will be asked to remove your shoes before entering each home on the Tour or utilize shoe covers provided. This is to help minimize the tracking of dirt into these beautifully decorated homes.
