CASA of the 31st Judicial District
Allen County Courthouse Room B • 1 N Washington Ave
Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) are community volunteers appointed by judges to advocate on behalf of children who have experienced abuse or neglect. These trained volunteers work with legal and child welfare professionals, educators and service providers to ensure judges have all the information they need to make the most well-informed decisions for each child. They represent the best interest of these children and are their voice in court. Advocates stay with the case until it is closed with the child in a safe, permanent home where they have the opportunity to thrive. For more information on becoming an amazing CASA Advocate, contact us today at 620-365-1448!
Gilead Lodge #144
116 E Butler St
The term "lodge" itself comes from the structures which the stonemasons built against the sides of the cathedrals during construction. In winter, when building had to stop, they lived in these lodges and worked at carving stone. But a Masonic lodge is more than a building; it is a living, breathing organization made up of and sustained by the members themselves. It is a tight-knit group of men who make solemn vows to one another and become comrades in Masonry and life. Above all, a Masonic lodge represents open arms, a helping hand, and brotherly love to every Mason, anywhere, at any time.
