CASA for Children, Inc.is a local, non-profit organization that trains community members to become Court Appointed Special Advocates who will speak up for the best interest of abused and neglected children in the Courts of Ohio, Marshall, Wetzel and Tyler Counties. CASA volunteers review records, research information and talk to everyone involved in a child’s life and then present their recommendation to the court as to what they feel is in the best interest of the child. Judges rely heavily on this fact-based testimony to make a more informed decision on the child’s future.

When a child has a Court Appointed Special Advocate to speak for them:
• Time in dependent care is reduced
• Delinquency is less likely
• The Child has a better chance to bond with a permanent home.
