Mission Statement

The mission of CASA is to speak for the best interests of abused and neglected children in the courts. We promote and support quality volunteer representation for children to provide each child a safe, permanent, nurturing home.

Description

Every year more than half a million abused and neglected children are in need of safe, permanent, nurturing homes. That's where CASA steps in. CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) was created in 1977 to make sure the abuse and neglect these children originally suffered at home doesn't continue as abuse and neglect at the hands of the system. As trained advocates, CASA volunteers are appointed by judges to be a voice for these children in court. The result is that a child is placed into a safe, loving home where he/she can thrive. It is the CASA vision to provide a volunteer for each and every abused and neglected child who needs one.

Would you recommend Morgan County CASA Program?

by Stan P. from Martinsville, IN (November 17, 2008)
This is one of the finest volunteer organizations in the area. Very professional, caring, and a tremendous asset to our community. The director is superb in every respect. The screening process is thorough, complete with background checks and reference checking. I have been involved as a volunter for almost 5 years - have the utmost respect for this group.

The program is well run, the training is excellent and the director is there with each volunteer when we go to court to advocate for our child(ren). This is an opportunity to really make a difference in the lives of the children in our community.
Engage your employees, consumers, or students! VolunteerMatch provides the tools that make community involvement easy.
