Mission, Vision & Values

Mission, Vision & Core Values

Children's Voice: CASA, Inc.'s mission: Providing trained volunteers to advocate for abused and neglected children in Douglas County foster care. 

Children's Voice: CASA, Inc.'s vision: To provide a CASA volunteer to every foster child in order for them to not only survive, but thrive.

In working to achieve our vision, we act on the following core values: 

  • Excellence in all our endeavors.
  • Inclusiveness and respect for all cultures, races and ethnicities: for children, families, volunteers, staff, board and supporters. 
  • Empowering the community through strong screening, training, supervision and support of volunteers. 
  • Honorable and respectful involvement in the child welfare system, with the courts and all parties. 
  • Independent and educated recommendations, true to our understanding of each child’s best interest, that prioritize children’s safety and, wherever possible, preserve connections to their families.
  • Responsible use of resources to maximize our positive impact on the child welfare system.

Our goal is simple: to ensure that every foster child has a safe, permanent and loving home as quickly as possible.
