Who Are We?
CASA of South Central Missouri provides advocacy for abused and neglected children in the 25th Judicial Circuit, which covers Phelps, Pulaski, Maries, and Texas Counties. We have an office right here in Pulaski County located at the Waynesville Courthouse on the 2nd floor across from the elevator. We would like to have a Court Appointed Special Advocate for every child by 2020
CASA Volunteers provide advocacy and friendship for abused and neglected children in the court system. CASA has two primary goals for the children that are served: 1. To ensure that every child receives the highest quality of care while under the court's jurisdiction; and 2. For every child to have a safe permanent home as quickly as possible.

Looking for letter-sized file hanging folders for the case files.Comfort Animal Toys
Children many times do not have a soft toy when they are missing their family or want to hold onto something that is something that they get to keep. Please consider making or picking out a soft plush toy and dropping off at the CASA office at the Pulaski County Courthouse building, 2nd floor. Thank you for your interest in helping children.Flat Touch Screen Monitor
Working with Volunteers we are in need of touchscreen monitors for some of our older advocates who have a hard time working with computer systems. This will give them an opportunity to finish their cases and also allow for interaction between the CASA Supervisor and Volunteer to give them support and consistency so they are able to focus on their CASA Child more.1" White Binders

Volunteer Needs (click need below to see detail)
CASA volunteers speak out for abused and neglected children in the court system. The volunteer will visit the child at least once a month in the foster home, visit with family, professionals, and court officials regarding the child's case, and make recommendations to the circuit judge regarding the child's placement and well-being.Child Advocates - Men Needed
Requires at least 8-10 hours a month, and compassion toward children and families. Must be at least 21 years old.
We are looking for men who want to have a positive impact on a CASA child who needs a role-model to work with and give guidance.
Men are especially needed in working with young men in the 25th Circuit Court system as having someone give guidance to them during their transition to becoming an adult can have a huge impact. #Volunteer #MakeADifference
