CASA Kane County was established in 1988 by concerned citizens, child welfare professionals and court personnel in response to concerns that the rights and needs of abused and neglected children were not being adequately addressed in court.

The program began with one director and two CASA volunteers that served seven children. In November 1992, the legal status of CASA volunteers changed from “Friends of the Court” to Guardians ad Litem. This change gave the advocates a far stronger voice in court, making them a full party to the cases with attorneys appointed to represent them. In the fall of 2004, CASA Kane County was asked by the Probate Court judge to expand its mandate.

CASA volunteers are now appointed to all child abuse and neglect cases in Juvenile Court as well as all private guardianship cases involving minors in Probate Court. Today there are approximately 281 CASA volunteers, 16 staff members, 18 members of the Board of Directors and 35 Chairman’s Advisory Panel members who support and represent the best interests of over 587 probate and abused/neglected children within the Kane County Juvenile Court system.
