CHANGE A CHILD'S STORY.
CASA Volunteers are ordinary citizens who make a commitment to serve on behalf of our community's most vulnerable children. CASA Volunteers carry out the Program's mission by building relationships with children and learning about their unique circumstances in order to make an informed and objective recommendation to Juvenile Court regarding the child's best interests.
CASA Volunteers complete specialized training in child abuse and neglect, child development, family dynamics, substance abuse, mental health and domestic violence to guide them in their work as Court Appointed Special Advocates. No specific background or education is required, the CASA program provides all of the necessary training to effectively do this work. Bring your unique perspective to the Athens County, OH CASA team!
