News & Events

Welcome to Our Two Newest CASA Volunteers

Our 2 new CASAs are Bridgett Miller and Jaime Zweep.  They were sworn by Judge Lawrence Gendler on December 9th.

Bridgett MillerMeet Bridgett: "I’m married with a 21-year-old daughter. I’m a disabled Air Force veteran and spend my free time doing Rottweiler rescue and photography. When I heard about the Cass CASA program, I thought, ‘What better way to spend my free time than to be children’s voices.’ I enjoy working with youth and have been known as ‘track mom’ to many through the years."

Jaime ZweepMeet Jaime: "I am married with 3 girls. I have grown up and now reside in Louisville, where I also own and work at my own hair salon. I am excited to start my CASA journey and hope to give children a voice, a listening ear and a positive adult role model."

Family Friends Adopt Five Children into Three Forever Families

These five adorable children were adopted into 3 different families who are all friends. There was laughter, fun, and chaos in the courtroom as all five children were legally adopted. These three families are friends who spend weekends together as one big happy family.

CASA volunteer, Sarah Sacco Rohde, had been with them from the beginning when they were removed from their home due to severe neglect and malnutrition two years ago. Today they are thriving.

All the parents reported to CASA how much of a difference the CASA volunteer made to the case. One of the comments made on the evaluation form was "She insured the kids had everything they needed, including school clothes and Christmas gifts." Also, that with a CASA volunteer "there was great communication, she was always there to answer our questions."

McSwane Family and Cass CASA Celebrate Adoption

Recently we celebrated with the McSwane family. Elizabeth McSwane was officially adopted in the Cass County courtroom on March 18, 2020 as her 5 older brothers watched. She has been a part of our CASA program since she was 17 days old and had to be removed from her home. CASA volunteers have loved on her, brought her Christms gifts from our CASA Giving Tree, and kept in close contact with her since her case first came in on July 21, 2017. We are so happy to see she has found her forever home.

Many Important Events Happen Every Month!

The most critical events don't appear on Cass County CASA's Calendar of Events. That is because our volunteers work behind the scenes to improve a child's future.

Each and every time one of our volunteers meet with the child they advocate for or other important adults in that child's life, a profound event takes place.

Please consider how you can help.
