CASA stands for Court Appointed Special Advocate. The CASA program benefits the children of Tuscarawas and Harrison counties. CASA Volunteers are appointed by judges to advocate for children’s best interest. This best-interest advocacy makes a life-changing difference for children and youth who have experienced abuse or neglect, most of whom are in foster care. Volunteers work with legal and child welfare professionals, educators and more to ensure judges have the information needed to make the most well-informed decisions for each child.

Mission Statement

We work for a world where every child who has experienced abuse or neglect is given the opportunity to thrive in a safe and loving home. Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) volunteers are appointed by a judge to advocate for a child’s best interest in the court system. Volunteers are community members of all walks of life who commit to directly help children who are experiencing abuse and neglect. Many of these children are in the foster care system. There are dozens of children in Tuscarawas and Harrison Counites in need of a CASA volunteer right now.

Description

A CASA/GAL volunteer is appointed by a judge to advocate for a child’s best interest in the court system. Volunteers are community members of all walks of life who want to help children in both Tuscarawas and Harrison Counties. Each volunteer receives more than 30 hours of training before receiving a case, on top of continued support and training from the Tuscarawas and Harrison County CASA team. Volunteers work with legal and child welfare professionals, educators and more to ensure judges have the information needed to make the most well-informed decisions for each child. This best interest advocacy can make a life-changing difference for children in need.
