Mission & Purpose


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.
“Becoming a CASA volunteer is an investment of time, energy, and heart. But as many volunteers have said of the children they worked with: ‘It wasn’t about what I gave them, it was what they showed me.'”

– Volunteer


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.

“It terrified me to make decisions about kids when I didn’t have anybody there.”

– Judge David W. Soukup
