Become a CASA

Take the first step today to fight for a child by completing the volunteer application.

Right here in our community, the Allen County CASA Program supports approximately 120 volunteers to work with over 440 children who have been victims of child abuse and neglect. But there is a tremendous need for additional volunteers.

Allen County CASA Program recruits, trains and supports CASA volunteers as advocates to get to know the abused or neglected child, determine their needs, and recommend what is in the child’s best interest. The CASA volunteer communicates this information about the child to the court so that the child’s voice can be heard and the child does not become “lost” in the system.
