Kearney/Buffalo County CASA is proud to honor Kelly Jensen of Minden as Volunteer of the Month for November. Kelly Jensen is a homemaker who has advocated for abused and neglected children for two years. She has always gone above and beyond to familiarize herself with case details, to help connect children and families with needed resources, and to make sure the child finds a safe, permanent home as soon as possible. Kelly makes a point of staying connected with all the team members and with the CASA office. Kelly is an excellent advocate.
Kelly says “I am a victim and survivor of child abuse myself. Everyone knew about it, but never said or did anything to protect me. When I heard about CASA first coming to Kearney County, it always had a place in my heart where I wanted to be involved. Once my kids got into school full-time, I took the training and am now on my third case over the past 2 years. I encourage everyone to look deep within themselves to become a voice for these children and go through the training to become a CASA advocate, to make a difference in a child’s life”.
