General information

Illinois CASA Facts CASA volunteers are officers of the court and appointed by a judge to serve as a special advocate to a child adjudicated as abused and/or neglected. A CASA or guardian ad litem advocates for the purpose of representing the child’s best interest. In FY 12, there were 106,206 children reported to be victims of abuse and neglect in Illinois. This means that 30 out of every 1,000 children in Illinois were abused. Tragically, 90 children in Illinois died from abuse or neglect. In 2012, there were over 2,517 CASA volunteers contributing over 170,177 volunteer hours for 5,716 children. This is equivalent to $271,578,592 in taxpayer dollars (based on a minimum attorney's fee of $110 per hour) to advocate for abused children in juvenile and family courts in Illinois. With local programs in only 36 out of Illinois' 102 counties, CASA provides a volunteer advocate for only 38% of the state's abused and neglected children. Illinois is one of only seven states that do not fund their CASA programs. Each CASA program is a separate nonprofit organization that relies heavily on community support to provide services. For more information about CASA visit: nationalcasa.org or illinoiscasa.org.
