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.

Summer 2020 graduating class of CASA volunteers

Summer 2020 Graduation

On 7/23/2020, we had 13 new volunteers join our CASA family! These new advocates weathered the COVID storm by practicing social distancing, wearing masks and partaking in a virtual class. Their dedication to CASA is already strong. 

Congratulations and welcome to Victoria Waterhouse, Rebecca Recsnik, Steve Miles, Molly Dawson, Yvonne Haddox, Danielle Coetzee, Donna Sieve, Jack Kopmann, Kathleen Kopmann, Alicia Bailey, James  Mueller, Timothy Feth and Denise Feth. 

Also, a very special thanks to St. Gertrude’s Parish, Frick’s Market and the Washington Knights of Columbus Hall. St. Gertrude’s Parish provided dinner and snacks to the volunteers during their training and Frick’s Market donated the delicious cupcakes to celebrate their graduation. The Washington KC hall generously allowed us to use their large space so that we could safely hold in person class sessions. 

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.
