Ottawa County CASA honors volunteers

The Ottawa County Court Appointed Special Advocates Program (CASA) honored its volunteers August 20, with a reception at the home of board member Linda O’Brian and her husband Wade.  

CASA volunteers act as advocates for children in the court system due to abuse, neglect, and dependency. They act as “fact finders” to provide the court with accurate, unbiased information, and advocate on behalf of the children’s best interests. The volunteers must complete 30 hours of pre-service training and then 12 hours of in-service training annually.  They commit a great deal of time and energy to the program, and to the children they serve.
