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.

Fall 2020 graduating class of CASA volunteers

Fall 2020 Graduation

On 11/19/2020, we had 12 new volunteers graduate after completing their final CASA pre-service training class! Our organization is very fortunate that COVID has not limited interest in CASA. While training looks very different, it has taught us to adapt and overcome. Foster kids are faced with uncertainty every day and, in a way, COVID has taught us how to empathize with their daily struggles. Our new volunteers are needed more than ever!  

Congratulations and welcome to Khalida Stidmon, Manuela Schnider-Schmitt, Renee Hoelscher, Hollie Allen, Emily Sunfield, Maureen King, Kaylynne Niederer, Maryann Jones, Catherine Williams, Nichole Zielke, Letha Misener and Nancy Kossmann.

Also, a very special thanks to Jubilee Church, Pizza Hut, Imos, Taco Bell, Big Boys, Fazoli’s and Frick’s Market. Jubilee Church of Washington generously allowed us to use their large space so that we could safely hold in person class sessions. The Washington area restaurants, mentioned above, provided food for the volunteers during their evening training sessions. Frick’s Market showed their ongoing support of CASA, by again kindly donating their delicious cupcakes to celebrate the graduation.

Our next training class will begin in March of 2021 at our new office location.  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.
