Thirty years ago, CASA started with $1,000, a director and one volunteer supporting one child. Now, the organization has four full-time staff members, four part-time staff members and 88 active volunteers who serve 103 children. But the need is greater. There are 76 children on the waiting list. As we celebrate 30 years of serving the communities of Douglas County, we share our dream to serve all children who have experience abuse and neglect and are involved in the court system.
