Darke Co. CASA earns certification

GREENVILLE – CASA of Darke County has been awarded certification by the National Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) Association. This certification recognizes that Darke County CASA is in compliance with National CASA’s high standards for quality child advocacy.

According to Michael Piraino, CEO of the National CASA Association, “The National CASA quality assurance process is very rigorous and reflects our commitment to ensure every child we serve has the most powerful volunteer advocate working on their behalf. This certification says Darke County CASA has demonstrated to us a strong capacity to provide excellent services to the abused and neglected children within their community.”

The Darke County CASA program was started in 1994, by Judge Richard Hole and the former director Fran Gullia. It has served as advocates for every abused and neglected child that has been involved in the Juvenile Court since that time.
