Super Hero Volunteers Needed!

If you’ve always wanted to volunteer and be a super hero and help children…here’s your chance! Your cape will be invisible to most people but the children you help will know you’re wearing one. Besides…real ones can get caught in stuff.

Volunteers Needed

There are abused and neglected children in the Adams County Court system waiting for a CASA volunteer.

CASA volunteers are trained community volunteers appointed by a judge to speak up for abused or neglected children in the court system. Volunteers receive 30 hours of training prior to case assignment. Training includes courtroom procedures, working with social service agencies and the special needs of abused and neglected children. Training is free with training manuals and materials provided. Once trained, CASA volunteers work alongside attorneys and social workers from case inception to its completion.

CASA volunteers come from all walks of life and no special experience is required. These trained volunteers will represent abused and neglected children in the Adams County court system.

All trainings will be held at the CASA office at 1420 Harrison Street Quincy, IL 62301.

Please Welcome Our Newest Employee

Libby Gaige

Please welcome Libby Gaige! She recently joined the staff at Advocacy Network for Children as the CASA Coordinator for Morgan County. Libby had this to say about joining the team: “I started with CASA on June 18, 2018. My first week was spent in CASA volunteer training, which I found to be extremely enlightening and beneficial.

I come from a long background of fund development, volunteer recruitment and retention and marketing. I spent 11 years with WMEC, WQEC, WSEC Public Television and 11 years as Regional Director for the American Cancer Society. I most recently was a Case Aide for Hobby Hours House Welfare Agency of west central Illinois, where I realized a passion for children in the court system.

I am married to my husband, Sonny of 50 years. I have one son, Tony, daughter-in-law, Diane and three fur grandchildren, Itzy, Eggo and Oona.

I look forward to the wonderful opportunity to work for CASA of Morgan County.”

Well said and we’re lucky to have you!
