OUR MISSION & PURPOSE
We provide every child in need with trained volunteer advocates to ensure they are safe, have a permanent home and the opportunity to thrive.
To achieve the mission we recruit volunteers from our community, train them so they have the skills and knowledge necessary to advocate for an abused child, and professionally support them so they are able to do this difficult work successfully. There is no other agency or program providing volunteer advocacy to abused and neglected children who are living in foster care.

WHY IS A CASA NEEDED?
There are more than 600 children in Marion County who are victims of abuse or neglect. For their own protection a Judge has placed them in the custody of the state for placement in foster care. In an underfunded and overburdened child welfare system, judges appoint community members to advocate for individual children and provide them with key insights to make the best possible decisions. These children need advocates-CASA volunteers devoted to following them through the legal and child welfare systems, and ensuring their needs are a top priority. The health and viability of our community is dependent upon the investment in our most vulnerable children.
