Board of Directors

Allen County CASA Program is advised by a group of community volunteers who assist the court and CASA Program in developing and revising policies and procedures to ensure the highest quality of advocacy for abused and neglected children in Allen County. Allen County CASA Coalition is a 501(c)3 nonprofit that is governed by a volunteer board of directors with diverse experience and skills. What all these people have in common is a dedication to helping abused and neglected children and a passion to see every child in their communities receive the support and guidance of a CASA volunteer, which they so desperately need while they are in foster care.
