Monroe County CASA would like to thank the City of Bloomington Jack Hopkins Social Services Funding Committee for selecting CASA to receive the 2018 Jack Hopkins grant. With these funds, CASA has been able to upgrade existing technology and purchase new equipment for our growing team. Monroe County CASA currently has 13 staff members, over 150 volunteers, and has been assigned to advocate for over 600 children this year.
Monroe County CASA is a volunteer-powered program that provides representation in juvenile court for child victims of physical abuse, sexual abuse, and neglect. The program recruits, screens, trains, and supervises adult community members who volunteer their time to serve as Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASAs), 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.
