2022 Capital City CASA Impact Video



It is the mission of Capital City CASA to advocate for the best interests of abused and neglected children and youth in the 19th Judicial Circuit of Missouri, based on the belief that all children are entitled to a safe and permanent home. The mission will be accomplished through screened, trained, and qualified community court appointed volunteers.


The Capital City CASA Program envisions that all Cole County children have safe, permanent homes free of abuse and neglect. To achieve that vision, Capital City CASA Program will work to ensure that the CASA program is sustained by highly trained CASA volunteers.


To provide a consistent experience in a safe environment for children, family members and advocates, providing hope while collaborating with our partners and the broader community.

Attention Golfers!

I am excited to be a part of the team at CASA. When my career ended with the state, I was looking for a position that I could be invested in that had a purpose. I have certainly found that at Capital City CASA. I appreciate what they do and I am pleased to be a part of this team.
