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.


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 Putnam County Youth Development Commission CASA Program?

by Diana K. from Cloverdale, IN (May 10, 2009)
The Court Appointed Special Advocate or CASA is a much needed service for the children of Putnam County. When childern are removed from their home for abuse or neglect they need someone to be their voice in court. These children often do not have a person in their life who is going to be there for them no matter what happens. They need to know there is, at least, one person who cares about what happens to them. Most have been in several placements during their time in the system. These can include reidential placements and foster care. Some have had 8 placemtns in 4 years. A CASA offers a form of stability for them.
