CASA of Northeast Arkansas, officially known as CASA of the 2nd Judicial District of Arkansas, is the second largest CASA organization in the state and one of 950 organizations in the country. A recent finalist for the Arkansas Nonprofit Alliance “High Impact Non-Profit of the Year” award, the organization serves five counties in northeast Arkansas, with the goal to serve 100% all children in foster care by 2020.

This is a unique opportunity for a visionary leader to continue the organization’s award-winning growth and take it to the next level of excellence.
Priorities of the position include:
- Diversifying the donor base, increasing individual and corporate donations, and developing and implementing a marketing plan to encourage endowments to benefit CASA through the Arkansas Community Foundation
- Strengthening organizational infrastructure and capacity
- Continuing to improve the organization’s impact by serving more children, improving children’s educational achievement, and advocating creatively in court for the children.
- Maintaining/improving grant funding
