CASA of Sedgwick County

Community's Perspective


Judges, Community Leaders and Others Endorse the Work of CASA

U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kansas): "CASA is recognized in Kansas and across the country as a model for watching over and protecting children in the court system. What makes CASA so successful is highly motivated volunteers and their ability to devote the time and attention needed to help one child at a time. The advocates and volunteers for CASA make a lifelong difference for children."

Honorable Robb Rumsey, Presiding Judge 18th Judicial District: "We CANNOT do our work as Juvenile Judges without CASA".

Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt: "CASA volunteers provide a critical service to Kansas children going through incredibly difficult situations. I am proud to support their mission of supporting caring, local volunteers to advocate on behalf of children in need."

Marc Bennett, Sedgwick County District Attorney "CASA: has been a constant in the lives of many children who have known only inconsistency".

Chief Justices and State Court Administrators: "The Conference of Chief Justices and the Conference of State Court Administrators recognize and commend the efforts and contributions of the CASA volunteers in assisting children before the court." 

American Bar Association Center on Children and the Law:  "CASA is an effective way that private citizens can respond to our nation's child protection emergency."

Marian Wright Edelman, Founder and President, Children’s Defense Fund "Keeping children safe must be everybody’s business. CASA volunteers play a unique role on behalf of some of our most vulnerable children. Their commitment, vigilance and persistence offer hope where there has been little. They help to light the way for these children—and for all of us."
