Attorney Cody J. Cooper has joined the Court Appointed Special Advocates of Oklahoma County as a member of the Board of Directors.
“As a director, I’ll being involved in helping CASA continue the success it is has experienced in serving Oklahoma County at-risk youth while helping to build off those prior successes to expand CASA’s operations and be able to help even more people,” he said. “This is an opportunity for me to be directly involved in a high community impact organization that provides an amazing services to those most vulnerable in our state.”
CASA provides a trained caring adult to advocate for the best interest of children who have been removed from their home due to abuse or neglect. Volunteers with CASA get to know these children and communicate with all parties in their case and people in the child’s life in order to provide complete information and sound recommendations to the court.
As “the eyes and ears” of the judge, the CASA volunteer offers a neutral, third-party opinion to the court, one that is unbiased and child-focused.
