WHAT IS A CASA VOLUNTEER?
A Court Appointed Special Advocate is a trained community volunteer appointed by the Juvenile Court to represent the best interests of an abused or neglected child.
Learn more about our CASA Program and how to become a volunteer advocate from your own home and continuing to practice social distancing.
As a CASA, you will not only bring positive change to the lives of children who are dependent, abused and neglected, but also their children and generations to come.
With the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) to Ohio, Child and Family Advocates of Cuyahoga County has been forced to drastically change procedures for the health and safety of the children we serve as well as our volunteers and staff. We must balance the need to provide quality advocacy for children while limiting social interaction and contact. All previously scheduled in-person information sessions have been cancelled. We will have set new dates and offer them in a webinar format through Zoom.
Would you like to significantly impact the life of a dependent, abused or neglected child in Cuyahoga County and help them find a safe and permanent home? Join us for an Online CASA Information Session via Zoom Thursday, May 14, 2020 at 6:30 p.m. We will have an engaging slide/video presentation and there will be time for Q&A with our CASA Volunteer Coordinators and a veteran CASA who will be able to answer questions that you may have about this unique volunteer role.
