About

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 571 children in foster care in Marion County and we have 61 CASAs at this time. 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.
