Become a Volunteer

What does it mean to be a CASA Volunteer:

“in the midst of darkness even the tiniest amount of light makes a difference; ask any child with a night light. Maybe, just maybe CASA can be that light.”
Joni Unger
CASA Volunteer

Our CASA volunteer advocates are ordinary citizens who are appointed by judges to speak in court for the safety and well-being of abused and neglected children so they can thrive in safe, permanent homes.

Our mission at Prairie Plains CASA is to provide a voice for neglected and abused children in the court system. To strive for less chaos and uncertainty in their lives while moving through the system until a safe permanent home can be provided for them in which they can grow and thrive.

You do not have to be a lawyer or social worker to be a volunteer. We welcome people from all walks of life. We are simply looking for people who care about children and have common sense. As a volunteer, you will be thoroughly trained and well supported by professional staff to help you through each case.

You must pass a background check, participate in a 30-hour pre-service training course and agree to stay with a case until it is closed (a year and a half on average). Read more about the requirements and role of being a CASA volunteer.

Our volunteer application is located below. You can fill it out and email it to us or print the form and mail to:  Prairie Plains CASA, 322 Norris Ave., Ste. 6, McCook, NE 69001.

““…we are not always able to conduct supervised visitations with families in their current residence. Over the past 6 months we have been fortunate to have the use of Matthew’s Place to hold family visitations. The CASA staff has been tremendously supportive…McConaughy Discovery Center greatly appreciates the opportunity to partner with Prairie Plains CASA. We highly encourage community members to stop and witness this beautiful facility serving the needs of families in the area. Prairie Plains CASA is a first class organization with a first-class facility."”
