New Youth Initiative in Partnership with CASA Kendall County

announcing a new charitable partnership with CASA Kendall County called CASA Kids

CASA Kendall County and the Fox Valley Family YMCA are excited to announce a joint initiative, CASA Kids, which is intended to serve children and families in the surrounding community who participate in CASA Kendall County. The goal of the partnership is to bring more opportunities for youth development, healthy living and social responsibility to children of CASA, ultimately improving children’s lives by providing a secure, intact and nourishing environment.  

“One of the Y’s goals is to partner with other non-profits in our community who share a similar vision.” Stephanie Majewski, Fox Valley Family YMCA CEO. “Taking the thinking from ME to WE, together we can make a bigger, positive impact in our community.”


Every child deserves to grow up feeling safe and loved. Together, CASA and the Y can help change children’s lives by providing a safe environment to try new things, develop skills, meet new people and show what they’re capable of.

Youth Development: Nurturing the potential of every child and teen

Healthy Living: Improving our communities health and overall well-being

Social Responsibility: Giving back and providing support to our neighbors

The new initiative, CASA Kids, will provide opportunities through YMCA membership, child-care, and other programs to expand CASA’s mission. Some of the opportunities available through the initiative are swim lessons, birthday parties, summer camp, before and after school care and more. The goal of these programs is to provide a safe environment for children to try new things, develop skills, meet new people and open their hearts and minds to their limitless capabilities.

The community’s generous support makes CASA Kids possible as well as gifts from YMCA Staff to the Y’s annual campaign and grants and donations from members and donors. Giving to the Y means giving directly to the children CASA and our community, providing a chance for them to learn, grow and thrive.
