CASA of Johnson & Wyandotte Counties


Johnson County is now one of the area's fastest growing in numbers of children in need of care. And in Wyandotte County, more than 1 in 3 children (35%) live in poverty. Child abuse and neglect numbers for the two counties combined account for 27% of the abused and neglected Kansas population.
