The First Circuit CASA program – serving Aurora, Brule, Buffalo, Davison, Douglas Hanson, Hutchinson, and McCook counties – is a non-profit organization. CASA recruits and trains community volunteers who are then appointed by judges to be independent fact finders and to speak up for the best interests of neglected and abused children in the court system.

You can help by becoming a CASA volunteer (training is scheduled for April 4/5); or supporting the First Circuit CASA program by providing a service or product; or by making a donation.
