Partner Spotlight: CASA of Shawnee County

The daughters of Brie Parks, 2021-2022 President, helping decorate cookies for the 2021 CASA Homes for the Holidays.

CASA is an organization that utilizes volunteers to advocate for the best interest of children and youth who are involved in the court system. In 1985, the Junior League of Topeka conducted a survey to determine the need for an organization like CASA and found children in Shawnee County could benefit from advocates. This lead to the Junior League of Topeka providing funding and volunteers to help establish CASA of Shawnee County.

Today, members of the Junior League of Topeka continue to show their support in a variety of ways, most recently by donating and compiling training manuals for future Advocates and by baking cookies for their CASA Homes for the Holidays event.
