Welcome To Lucas County Casa
Lucas County CASA – Court Appointed Special Advocates – is a non-profit organization of volunteers who work for the juvenile court judges to help abused and neglected children find safe and permanent homes. The Lucas County CASA Program, one of the oldest and most respected of the nearly 1000 CASA programs nationwide, has operated in Lucas County since 1980.
CASA volunteers are everyday citizens who are trained to investigate and monitor child abuse cases. CASA volunteers work for the juvenile court judges and are sworn officers of the court. CASA’s mission is to advocate so that child victims do not get lost in the system and find safe, permanent homes.
Approximately 4,000 allegations of child abuse and neglect are investigated annually in Lucas County. CASA volunteers work with about 1,000 children each year.
