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.
