Welcome to CASA of Montana
Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Montana is a nonprofit organization that partners with 15 local nonprofit programs in Montana. CASA volunteers, or Court Appointed Special Advocates, are appointed by district court judges to advocate for the best interests of abused and neglected children. CASA of Montana’s mission is to promote advocacy for these children so they can thrive in safe, permanent homes. Over 600 CASA volunteers advocate for over 2,600 neglected and abused children caught up in the child protection and foster care system through no fault of their own. We are the voice of the child.
Together we support and promote court-appointed volunteer advocacy so that every abused or neglected child can be safe, establish permanence and have the opportunity to thrive.
Big Sky Boots & Buckles: An Evening of Song and Celebration for the Benefit of CASA of Montana Starring Jimmy Wayne
November 7, 2014 - Country recording artist, songwriter, advocate for foster children and author Jimmy Wayne will be the featured guest at CASA of Montana’s inaugural statewide fundraiser on Thursday, November 20, at the historic Baxter Hotel in Bozeman, Montana.
The fundraiser, “Big Sky Boots & Buckles: An Evening of Song and Celebration for the Benefit of CASA of Montana” also will include silent and live auctions, which will highlight authentic Montana products, services, and experiences. The fundraiser is for CASA of Montana to continue its mission of supporting the 15 local programs so they can recruit, train and retain competent CASA advocates who represent the best interests of children involved in the foster care system.
“Walking to Beautiful: The Power of Love and a Homeless Kid Who Found the Way“ is the just-released Jimmy Wayne autobiography which details the singer’s true-life story and how he overcame great adversity. The book, released Oct. 7, is already on the New York Times best seller list.
Abandoned by his mother at a bus station parking lot at 13, his father not in the picture, homeless, and raised as a foster child, Jimmy Wayne walked more than 1,400 miles on foot in 2010 from Nashville to Phoenix to raise awareness for kids aging out of the foster care system. The following year he became CASA’s national spokesperson. Since then, he has become an ardent advocate of foster children everywhere, by writing, singing, and speaking.
The Bozeman event will be Jimmy’s first time in Montana, and will be on Nov. 20 from 5:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. Tickets can be purchased online. Discount tickets are available 50% off for CASA advocates and children. Call the CASA of Montana office, 406.443.2448, to purchase the discount tickets.
