Our Mission

Friends of CASA of Ottawa County’s mission is to raise the level of awareness and provide funding and support for neglected and abused children under the jurisdiction of the Ottawa County Family Court. We strive to ensure the necessary resources for the CASA of Ottawa County, Michigan program to effectively advocate for children.
