They Are Worthy

Children in our community need YOU.

They Are Worthy” is a partnership among CASA of Scotts Bluff County, DHHS, Guardian Light Family Services (GLFS), St. Francis Ministries, and NFAPA (Nebraska Foster and Adoptive Parent Association).

We are recruiting CASA volunteers and foster families for our area. There are abused and neglected children in our community who need a voice in court or a safe place to live until they can return home to their parents. You can be the one to show them They Are Worthy of being safe and cared for.

To Become a CASA Volunteer:

CASA stands for Court Appointed Special Advocates. We train a group of volunteers to advocate for children in the county court system. These children are in the system not because of something they did, but because of something someone else did to them. All of the children we serve are impacted by abuse and neglect. Our volunteers get to know the children they are assigned to and eventually write a report to the Judge on what we believe is in the child’s best interest.

To Become a Foster Parent:

There is an ongoing need in Nebraska for families willing to share their hearts and their homes with children who require foster care. So many abused and neglected children from our community are being placed several hours away from home. Distance presents challenges for coping, the chance for reunification, and the overall well-being of the child. Contact NFAPA, or a foster care agency to learn more about how you can help children in need!
