How To Help

Our Supporters

In 1993, the CASA Board Volunteer Association, Inc. was established to further the mission and support the work of the CASA/GAL Program of Summit County, Ohio. The Board partners with the Program by raising and administering funds for enhanced programming, personnel support, promoting public awareness of the CASA Program, and recognizing the efforts of CASA’s heroic volunteers. 

The Board is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, and separate from the Juvenile Court.

The CASA Board and program sincerely thank the following 2022 supporters. Without their generous contributions, the program could not provide volunteer advocates to more than 700 abused and neglected children annually.

The Kimberly S. Denholm Charities was established to honor the memory of former Summit County CASA/GAL volunteer, Kim Denholm. Kim was a volunteer for over five years and was dedicated to ensuring the safety and happiness of the children she served. For almost fifteen years, The Kimberly S. Denholm Charities has been financially supporting the CASA program by donating funds to the annual toy shop as well as volunteering at various CASA events. The Summit County CASA Program appreciates the on-going support of the Kimberly S. Denholm Charities in making the lives a little bit brighter for the children we serve.
