SERVICE & YOUTH ESSENTIAL RESOURCES

Going over and beyond to help bridge the needed resources in healthcare, education and transportation. Review the additional support that CASA Kane County can provide to better meet our children’s needs.

  • Service Resources to help assist with additional healthcare, vision testing, dentistry, and transportation needs
  • Incidental Resources for youth and CASA volunteers from suitcases and baby bags to gift cards and college care packages. Youth seasonal experiences like camps and theater tickets, pumpkin farms and ice skating are additionally available

*Please note that we make all effort to ensure youth needs that are eligible to be covered by DCFS are fulfilled.

“My CASA volunteer went above and beyond the call of duty. I believe that everyone is born with the ability to succeed but that some fail to meet their potential. As youth in care, we need more support to know what we are capable of because we often feel we are less than average. My CASA volunteer provided that encouragement and support.” – CASA Youth
