CASA volunteers needed to help Wood County children

CASA volunteers advocate for the best interest of children who have experienced abuse and neglect, some of whom are in foster care.

CASAs get to know the child and their family and make recommendations to the court regarding services and placement to help families remain strong.

Volunteers must be 21 years old, have a valid driver’s license, complete an extensive background check, and participate in 30 hours of pre-service training. The average CASA volunteer donates 5-10 hours per month to their CASA case.
