Monroe County CASA is a nonprofit, volunteer-powered program which provides representation in juvenile court for child victims of physical abuse, sexual abuse and neglect in Monroe County. The program recruits, screens, trains and supervises adults who volunteer their time to serve as Court Appointed Special Advocates, with full legal authority set forth by the state of Indiana. CASAs provide advocacy to child victims to ensure that they remain at the forefront of the court proceedings and find a safe, permanent home as quickly as possible.
