Our Mission

To recruit, train and support community volunteers who assist the court in protecting the best interests of abused and neglected children in Southwest Missouri



You are invited to join Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Southwest Missouri as we host this year’s Annual Voices for Children Gala, "The Road to Oz – Wishes Do Come True.”

The 2014 Voices for Children Gala will be held on Thursday, November 20, 2014, at the Ramada Plaza Oasis Convention Center. Guests will enjoy fine dining, musical entertainment and an exciting silent auction.


Doors open at 6:30 pm.  Event begins at 7:00 pm.

Along with highlighting the life changing work at CASA, the inspirational message will show how your support changes young lives for the better. Our special speaker will be Jackie Davis. Jackie is a former foster and CASA child. He entered foster care at eighteen months old. His parents struggled with drugs and alcohol addiction. While in care he rotated through several homes and shelters, and experienced a failed adoption at the age of five. Thankfully, with the help of a CASA volunteer, he had a successful adoption at the age of thirteen. Jackie now shares his experiences to help other kids involved in the foster care system.
