Bar Leadership Academy Seeks Donations For PlainsWest CASA

 The 2018-19 Nebraska State Bar Association Leadership Academy is raising $7,500 to help finish an accessible restroom to support Sidney’s PlainsWest CASA facility. 

The Counsel for CASA public service project is accepting donations at tinyurl.com/y5pfk8bl or by mail through a check made payable to the Nebraska Lawyers Foundation and sent to Nebraska State Bar Association, LA Fundraiser/CASA, 635 S. 14th St. #200, Lincoln, NE 68508. 

PlainsWest CASA provides advocacy for child victims of abuse and neglect involved in juvenile court proceedings in Cheyenne, Deuel and Kimball counties. The Sidney office provides families with a safe environment to exercise supervised visits, according to a Counsel for CASA website. 

Construction on an accessible restroom began earlier this year, but the project remains unfinished. PlainsWest CASA hopes to finish the restroom by the end of the summer. All money raised by Counsel for CASA will benefit the PlainsWest CASA group.
