Franklin County CASA

Court Appointed Special Advocates

Serving Franklin and Gasconade Counties of Missouri

There is a child in the foster care system waiting for a volunteer like you. With a CASA Volunteer, children are more likely to adjust to change, do well in school, and find safe, permanent homes. Get involved and Change a Child’s Story.™

Change a Child’s Story™

Get involved where it matters

A CASA Volunteer provides a judge with carefully researched background information of the child to help the court make a sound decision about that child’s future.

Winter 2020 graduating class of CASA volunteers

Winter 2020 Graduation

On March 16th, Franklin/Gasconade County CASA history was made when 19 (that’s right: 19) CASA volunteers graduated!

This is by far our largest graduating class EVER.

We are so excited knowing that some long awaiting kids in Franklin and Gasconade counties will soon have their very own advocate. 

Congratulations new graduates! We cannot wait to see you in action. You’re going to be great!

Also, a very special thanks to Jubilee Church of Washington for providing dinner and snacks to the volunteers during their training and then topping it off with a beautiful cake and delicious punch for their graduation.

Our next training class will begin in the Fall of 2020.  If you’re interested in joining this amazing group of new graduates, please apply below or if you’d like to  sponsor our dinner/snacks for our upcoming class, please call the office at 636-583-4422.
