K-9 Koda's Crime Prevention Tips

Safe House Designations Need to Be Identified!


Parents- you should choose a safe house in your neighborhood. Pick a neighbor’s house that you know and trust.  A place where your child(ren) can go if they need help. Point out other places they can go for help, like stores, libraries, and police stations.

Not only does this offer safe places for children in the community, but also helps build relationships among neighbors. Having numerous safe houses gives children more options in the community should they ever need assistance.

Toys for Tots 

Toys for Tots, a 70-year national charitable program run by the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve, provides happiness and hope to disadvantaged children during each Christmas holiday season. The toys, books and other gifts collected and distributed by the Marines offer these children recognition, confidence and a positive memory for a lifetime. It is such experiences that help children become responsible citizens and caring members of their community. Last year the Marine Corps fulfilled the holiday hopes and dreams of 7 million less fortunate children in 792 communities nationwide. Since 1947 over 244 million children have been assisted. For more information, visit www.toysfortots.org.

Toys may be dropped off at the Village Hall, 40W270 LaFox Road  from now until December 7, 2019 during regular business hours 9:00 am - 4:00 pm.

Kids

Change a Child's Story: CASA

CASA Kane County Is A Nonprofit, Volunteer-Based Organization That Advocates For Abused And Neglected Children Within The Juvenile Court System. Our Highly Trained Volunteers Are Appointed By A Judge To Represent The Best Interests Of Children In The Abuse And Neglect Court.

Our Obligation Is To Ensure That The Children We Represent Will Be Visited At Least Monthly, And That Their Needs, Desires And Circumstances Will Be Reported To The Court At Every Scheduled Hearing. The Court Appointed Special Advocate/Guardian Ad Litem (CASA/GAL) Will Be The Consistent Person In The Child’s Life.


SUPPORT ABUSED AND NEGLECTED CHILDREN

  • How much will you give to help the children of our community?


When children can’t speak for themselves, CASA can.

CASA Kane County relies on the generosity of individuals, corporations and foundations for annual donations. Your donation provides a trained CASA/ GAL volunteer to support what’s in the best interest of youth in foster care.

Volunteers are vital to our mission of serving 100% of the abused and neglected children in the 16th Judicial Circuit.  Our volunteers fill many roles – from serving as a Court Appointed Special Advocate/Guardian ad Litem (CASA/GAL); to helping collect gifts for youth in care during the holiday season; being our “boots on the ground” in order to set up and manage one of our many fundraising events; to serving on a committee or in a leadership role for the organization.
