Athens CASA has been operating since 1993. The local program is part of a larger network of CASA programs all around Ohio and the United States. Athens CASA has been recognized as a leader within Ohio. Recently the Athens CASA Director, Jenny Stotts, was selected to take on a role throughout Southeast Ohio to support new and developing CASA programs, through a partnership with the Ohio Attorney General's Office and the Ohio CASA Association.
The Athens CASA/GAL Program has also been in the national spotlight, having been invited to present at back to back National CASA Association Conferences featuring training initiatives developed locally.
Athens CASA has also been recognized for innovative and creative recruitment practices, having more than tripled the volunteer roster in just a few short years.
