Virtual CASA Informational Session

Child and Family Advocates of Cuyahoga County invite you to become an advocate for abused and neglected children.

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. This one-hour session will provide information about the role of a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) volunteer and the process in which our volunteers advocate for children who have been abused or neglected in Cuyahoga County. Join us to learn what it means to be a CASA volunteer in our community.

CASA volunteers:

  • Are at least 21 years old
  • Pass a background check
  • Participate in pre-service training
  • Make a two-year time commitment (10-12 hours monthly)
  • Communicate effectively orally and in writing
  • Investigate, advocate, facilitate, and monitor

This session will be held virtually via Zoom on Thursday, January 20, 2022, from 5:00 - 6:00 pm. The Zoom link will be provided to those individuals who RSVP. Please RSVP to Hannah Wiltshire, CASA Program Director, at
