CASA is a volunteer-powered program which provides representation in juvenile court for child victims of abuse and neglect. They provide support to these children to ensure that they remain at the forefront of the court proceedings and find a safe, permanent home as quickly as possible. Right now there are over 100 children in Monroe County waiting for an advocate. To learn more about how you can give a child a voice, please visit www.monroecountycasa.org or call 812-333-CASA.
