KidGlov, a boutique, full-service advertising, branding and content marketing agency based out of Lincoln and Omaha, Neb., recently welcomed Christina Millsap, training director of Nebraska CASA Association, to its podcast, Agency for Change. The episode explored Millsap’s work training volunteers who advocate for Nebraska’s abused and neglected children.
“There are thousands of kids in Nebraska who need an advocate,” said Kelley Peterson, vice president, nonprofit creative director at KidGlov. “Nebraska CASA is an incredible organization whose volunteers give voices to those kids. It was inspiring to speak with Christina and learn more about the needs of the children they serve and how anyone with volunteer time can help.”
Nebraska CASA Association works to improve the lives of abused and neglected children by connecting them with a volunteer advocate. CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) volunteers are well-trained and speak in court on behalf of children, due to no fault of their own, have been removed from their homes due to abuse or neglect. CASA volunteers make sure the child’s needs and interests are heard by the court and are often the only stable factor in an often frightening and difficult ordeal for a child.
During the Agency for Change podcast, Millsap speaks of her passion for this work, her 22 years of experience at Nebraska CASA, and how volunteers are trained to support children who have been abused and neglected.
“There are over 3,000 children in the foster care system because they have experienced abuse and neglect. We’re serving about half of those who need a CASA volunteer,” said Millsap. “If you’ve got 8-10 hours a month to spare to volunteer and make a real impact in a child’s life, why wouldn’t you give this a chance?”
The full Agency for Change episode featuring Christina Millsap can be found on KidGlov’s website, or wherever podcasts are available.
