Statements
Mission The mission of Cleveland County CASA is to help ensure safe and permanent homes for children and to ensure their needs are addressed while they are wards of the juvenile court, as provided by Title 10 of the Oklahoma Statutes. 
Background Cleveland County CASA was established in 1984 and was the first CASA program created in the state of Oklahoma. At the time of it's inception, the presiding deprived court judge realized the importance of having such a program in existence. He believed that these cases needed an objective, outside, third party opinion on what was in the best interest of these children. CASA volunteers provide just that, an unbiased perspective of the case. Furthermore, due to the existence of an overburden Child Welfare and Judicial systems, a CASA volunteer, oftentimes, provide that one point of consistency in a case, and in a child's life. 
Impact
Cleveland County CASA trained and screened 37 of CASA volunteers in 2014 to serve as advocates for abused and neglected children.
Furthermore, Cleveland County CASA advocated on behalf of 175 children. Cleveland County increased the number of active volunteers in our Outreach Program by 600% from 2013 to 2014.
Goals for Cleveland County CASA for the current year are to screen and train 30 new CASA volunteers as well as provide advocates for 110 deprived child cases and/or 230 children. In 2014, CASA had 81 volunteers advocating on 105 cases. 
Needs The primary need of Cleveland County CASA is to recruit and train more volunteers to serve as advocates. There are currently close to 200 cases that have been referred to our program awaiting assignment of a CASA volunteer. In 2013 there were 125 number of petitions filed by the district court in Cleveland, McClain, and Garvin counties, alleging child victims of abuse and neglect. It can be estimated that in any given year, we only serve roughly 30% of the children in care. In 2014 that number of petitions increased to 188. The need for CASA volunteers continues to increase as the number of abused and neglected children continue to rise. 
CEO/Executive Director Statement Cleveland County CASA is the only agency providing advocacy services to abused and neglected children in our community. The number of children who are victims of abuse and neglect has been increasing over the last several years. More children are wards of the juvenile court and in the custody of the Department of Human Services every year.  At any given month there are more than 300 children in out of home care in our county. Those children need a voice, need an advocate to ensure they don't get lost in the system, and need someone to fight for their best interests when they can't. That's what you can do as a CASA volunteer. CASA volunteers are needed now more than ever, to ensure these children find safe and permanent homes, as quickly as possible. The system can be very scary and confusing for children, especially for those who have suffered trauma from abuse and neglect. CASA volunteers can provide that one point of consistency in the ever changing lives of these children.

Comments on Programs
CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments The biggest challenge within Cleveland County CASA is a decrease in the number of active volunteers assigned to advocate on behalf of children. As with most non-profits or volunteer based organizations, there has been a decline in volunteerism. With an increase in the number of children who are victims of abuse and neglect, the need for volunteers within our agency is even greater. Due to this decline, our agency has increased the number of community speaking engagements as well as the number of community awareness events that we hold in an attempt to increase the community's overall awareness of our agency and the need for CASA volunteers.
