Bill Snyder endorses Kansas CASA"During my 44 years working with young people, I observed the benefits they derive from having a caring adult in their lives to provide them support, guidance and knowledge. CASA volunteers do just that. CASA is an essential component of helping our youth through a very trying time in their lives and I’m very proud to have CASA agencies serve as partners to Kansas Mentors. The service CASA volunteers provide our youth is invaluable."

Senator Jerry Moran endorses Kansas CASA"CASA is recognized in Kansas and across the country as a model for watching over and protecting children in the court system. What makes CASA so successful is highly motivated volunteers and their ability to devote the time and attention needed to help one child at a time. The advocates and volunteers for CASA make a lifelong difference for children."

Michael Piriano endorses Kansas CASA

"For two decades, Kansas CASA has been a powerful force enriching the lives of thousands of abused and neglected children. The good you have enabled in these young lives will flow on and on through the years."

Michael Piraino
CEO, National CASA Association


"In my work as a Guardian ad litem (GAL) attorney, CASA is essential.  CASA volunteers have 1 to 2 cases, therefore giving them more time to gather information that often GAL’s cannot.  Having a dedicated volunteer greatly improves the outcomes for children in child abuse and neglect cases."
