WYO Gives: CASA of the 5th Judicial District

WyoGives – an initiative of the Wyoming Nonprofit Network – is a powerful, statewide 24-hour online fundraising event that is designed to bring the state together as one community to raise money and awareness for Wyoming’s nonprofits.

The 3rd annual WyoGives will take place Wednesday, July 13, 2022, with 250+ organizations participating. From this website platform, you can easily search and donate to nonprofits. In some cases, your donation will be matched by a partner the nonprofit has recruited or by our matching and challenge partners according to their parameters. Be sure to come back here on July 13th (anytime in that 24-hour period) and support your favorite causes and watch the ticker count the donations coming in!

CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) is a national program created in 1977 by Seattle Superior Court Judge Soukup. He was faced daily with making decisions on behalf of abused and neglected children with only the information provided by the Child Protective Services. Soukup formulated the idea that the volunteers could be dedicated to a case and speak for the children’s best interests. Since its founding, CASA programming has grown to cover 49 states. The National CASA agency relies on pass thru grants from the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention as well as partnerships with non-profits, philanthropic corporations, and community action groups.

CASA’s are volunteers from the community who complete 30 hours of training provided by National CASA. The training consists of classroom training, local court and law training and continued training throughout the year. CASA volunteers must pass an extensive background check. Each agency develops is own program implementing the National CASA standards and training.

CASA volunteers are generally appointed at the first hearing for the welfare of a child. They work with legal and child welfare professionals, educators and service providers to ensure that judges have all the information they need to make the most well-informed decisions for each child.

CASA’s best interest advocacy is driven by the guiding principle that children grow and develop best with their family of origin, if that can be safely achieved. Most of the children we work with are in foster care, but some are with their family of origin, and most children who leave foster care do so to return to their family.
