Illinois CASA is pleased to share our FY21 Annual Report. In the spirit of Thanksgiving, we are grateful for the hard work carried out by more than 3,200 volunteer advocates across Illinois as well as the staff partners at our 31 Local CASA Programs. Also, sincere thanks to our funders and our court and community based partners who share a vision of an Illinois where all children thrive in a safe, permanent and loving home.
Illinois CASA Board of Directors met in June 2021 to conduct their final meeting in FY21. The Board adopted a new DEI mission statement with focus to strive to ensure equity for all children who have experienced abuse and/or neglect in Illinois regardless of race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, disability or socio-economic status.
What qualities does a CASA volunteer need to have? "...having a big heart and an open mind will start the process."
