Where it all started 

Seneca County

Our CASA program began in Seneca County in 1990 when the Seneca County Task Forced noticed the large number of child abuse cases being reported, and so they recommended that a CASA program be started. With the help of Seneca County Juvenile Court Judge Gerald Meyer and the Family Preservation Council, as well as funding from the Mental Health Services Board, the Seneca County Commissioners, and Tiffin-Seneca United Way, our program was born!

Sandusky County

The need to help children continued to be great, so with the approval from the Sandusky County Juvenile Court Judge Brad Culbert, the Sandusky County program was added in 1992.

Wyandot County

The work didn't stop there! Wyandot County was added in 1998 with the help of Wyandot County Commissioners. From this point on, we were CASA of Seneca, Sandusky, and Wyandot Counties!
