CASA of Marion County

We connect community members with children who have been abused or neglected and are in foster care. Our volunteers provide a voice for the child during court hearings which determine what is a safe and permanent home for the child. Our volunteers are trained and sworn in by a judge to become a Court Appointed Special Advocate and provided with guidance by our staff.

We currently have between 500-600 children in foster care in Marion County, and 100 CASA volunteers. Our goal is to have a CASA for every child. As you can tell the need is great and we are looking for volunteers who are passionate about being a voice for the most vulnerable.
