 burning logs in Animated fireplace

PLEASE! NO BURNING! 

Many grass fires along with the high winds lately have been keeping Murray and surrounding fire departments very busy.  It's much too dry to be starting any fires, even those in burn barrels.

 PLEASE - DO NOT throw lit cigarettes outdoors!  

THANK YOU!

2012-07-25 CASA_LOGO

CASS COUNTY CASA VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!

We are currently recruiting CASA Volunteers for the upcoming training session scheduled in April 2014. We only train two classes a year, call and reserve your spot today.

What does a Court Appointed Special Advocate volunteer do? Each CASA volunteer is screened, trained and completes 30 hours of pre-service training. Once trained, CASA volunteers are assigned under the Juvenile Court jurisdiction to speak on behalf of a child to ensure the needs and interests of abused and neglected children are being met.

Who are CASA volunteers? Our active volunteers are individuals from our community who work part-time, full-time or are retired. Volunteers commit to one year with a child, but seldom leave a case until it has been terminated.

If I can't be a CASA volunteer, how can I help? In addition to training new CASA volunteers, we are also in need of administrative services support such as filing, data entry and making copies.

Your help directly benefits the Cass County CASA Program. A donor-supported volunteer organization whose mission is to offer court-appointed volunteer advocacy to children that are abused, neglected and often find themselves lost in the court system. Through Cass County CASA, these children are placed with advocates that speak on their behalf and know them well enough to make informed recommendations to the judge.

Please call Angie Neumiller, Executive Director at 402-296-9620 or email   This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it  and become a CASA volunteer today.
