CASA Playhouse Raffle

19th Annual 2021 Casas for CASA Playhouse Raffle

Win a custom-built themed playhouse from CASA!

The Casas for CASA Playhouse Raffle is an annual fundraiser to benefit the Macon County Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) Program, a non-profit that recruits and trains community volunteers to serve as advocates for abused and neglected children in the court’s care.

In March, two playhouses will be built and decorated by professional builders and then raffled off to two lucky winners!

Playhouse Raffle Tickets will be sold online and at various locations throughout the community. Check back soon for more details.

The annual playhouse raffle is held in April to coincide with Child Abuse Prevention Month in order to help benefit and bring awareness to the currently 587 abused and neglected children in foster care in Macon County, Illinois.

For further information regarding this year’s Casas for CASA Playhouse Raffle, please contact Macon County CASA at 428-8424. We encourage your commitment to and support of Macon County CASA, and our community. With your help, ALL of Macon County’s abused and neglected children will have the opportunity for a bright and promising future.

Camp CASA 2021
M
ay 30 – June 1
Camp Warren Campgrounds
Decatur, IL  

Since 2018, Macon County CASA has hosted up to 60 local foster children each summer in a 3 day, 2 night summer camp event. This unique annual event held at the beautiful Camp Warren campgrounds (Decatur, IL) allows foster children with the opportunity to leave their foster parents and to be safely surrounded by all foster kiddo peers!  For the first time, these kiddos do not live with the secret of being children in care.  With the supervision and guidance of the Macon County CASA staff, CASA volunteer advocates, background checked and trauma trained community volunteers, and a 24 hour volunteer medical staff, campers interact with one another in team building activities, camp games, therapy sessions, guest speaker sessions, and more all geared towards fun and allowing our foster kids to just be kids.

Camp CASA guest speakers have included the Macon County Juvenile Advocacy GAL (guardian ad lidem), Brian Finney, award-winning foster care alumni, Shenandoah Chefalo (author of Garbagebag Suitcase), PawPrint Ministries/CASA comfort dogs, and Heartland Mini Hoofs Therapy horses. 

Mark your calendars and stay tuned for plans of the 2021 Camp CASA event and opportunities to volunteer and donate!

CASA Christmas

CASA Christmas

As foster children frequently move homes, holidays are especially difficult for them to experience.  As the consistent person in their lives, the CASA advocate has the opportunity to see the child before each holiday.  CASA loves to take this chance to help our assigned foster kiddos know that someone cares about them.

Each year, Macon County CASA receives donated gifts for each of our 315 assigned foster children.  In 2018 & 2019, CASA partnered with Girls Who Code who organized community donations and gifts.

In December 2020, with the organizational and financial help of The Young Leaders in Action, The Community Foundation of Macon County, and Decatur Rotary Club #180, Macon County CASA and our volunteers were able to provide Christmas gifts for our just over 320 assigned local foster children.  These gifts were a true blessing to all of the children who received them and we are continuously grateful for the community’s commitment to change our local foster children’s stories. 

To all of our individual and organizational gift givers below, we offer a very special thank you for your support of CASA this holiday season:
