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.

Our mission

Hope is everything

Franklin County CASA, Inc. advocates for the best interest of children of abuse and neglect who are under the protection of the Franklin County and Gasconade County Juvenile Courts. 

Through highly trained community Volunteer Advocates, the child’s needs are heard, researched and advocated for throughout the duration of the child’s time before the court, thus securing a safe and permanent home for all such children.

Spring 2022 Graduation

In April, Franklin County CASA added ten new volunteers to the CASA family! This group of amazing individuals from different backgrounds came together with the common interest of advocating for children in foster care. By being that one consistent figure in a child’s life, they will instill a sense of belonging to children facing upheaval and uncertainty. 

Congratulations to Tracey Gutierrez, Elizabeth Harbert, Tricia Higgins, Philicia Meyer, Shelly Osburn, Nicholas Risch, Nicole Risch, Timothy Schumann, Michelle Sieve and Maria Whitworth. 

We also want to extend a very special thank you to First Christian Church of Washington, St. John United Church of Christ (St. Clair), Owensville Christian Church, First Presbyterian Church (Union) and the CASA Board of Directors for providing the class with dinner and snacks during their weekly class session. 

Our next training will begin in June 2022. Application deadline is May 15th, 2022! 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.
