Nevada CASA Association works to assure sound public policies on issues affecting the Nevada child welfare system, the well-being of children and youth in state custody, and other policy areas related to our mission.
Along with the local CASA programs and their volunteers, Nevada CASA engages in a variety of efforts to study, develop and change public policies. Additionally, Nevada CASA staff and Board Members conduct research, collaborate with other advocacy and stakeholder groups, participate in special task forces, and engage in other processes to develop and impact policy.
A sampling of Nevada CASA’s public policy endeavors include:
• Member, Nevada Children’s Commission
• Member, Court Improvement Program (CIP)
• Member, Community Improvement Council (CIC) Legislative Committee
• Attending and contributing to legislative task forces and committees
