Abused and neglected children need more help than the system can provide. As a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) volunteer, you can make a difference in these children’s lives. By serving as the eyes and ears of the court, you will keep their best interests front and center and help guarantee their right to a safe, loving and permanent home where they will thrive.
This six-week, two-evenings-a-week training session will equip you with the tools you need to give these vulnerable children a voice and make a lifelong difference for them and for generations to come.
Save the date! The Indiana State CASA / GAL Conference, "More Than Words," will be held on October 1st of this year. More information will be forthcoming.
