In 2015, the Wood County Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) Program was able to appoint a CASA volunteer to over 130 Wood County children who were alleged to be abused, neglected or dependent.
Unfortunately, there are not enough volunteer advocates available for all the abused and neglected children in Wood County who need one. CASA Volunteers are members of the community who receive the necessary training to advocate in the Wood County Juvenile Court for the best interest of these children. CASA Volunteers are appointed by the court to gather detailed information about a child’s life, make recommendations to the court, advocate for the child’s best interest, monitor court orders and stay involved with the child until a safe, permanent home is found.
If you are interested in ways that you may volunteer your time to help the children of Wood County or the Wood Co. CASA Program, contact our office for more information at 419-352-3554, firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.woodcountycasa.org. Make a difference in the life of a child become a CASA volunteer!
