CASA of Licking County, Ohio seeks to recruit, train and supervise community volunteers on open cases in juvenile court in which a child has experienced abuse or neglect.
CASA volunteers are extraordinary volunteers. A volunteers appointment includes getting to know the child and their unique circumstances and then making recommendations to the court on what is in their best interests. On average, CASA volunteers spend 8-10 hours a month on a case; investigating, getting to know the child, and communicating with appropriate parties. In the life of a child navigating foster care, a CASA volunteer is sometimes their only consistency. We need your advocacy for the over 500 children in foster care in the county.
