Mission Statement

Our mission is to help secure a safe, permanent home for each child in our area.

Description

Monroe County CASA recruits, trains, and supervises about 100 court-appointed special advocates for children in Monroe County (south-central Indiana) who have suffered parental neglect and/or physical or sexual abuse. Volunteers receive 35 hours of initial training and about 12 hours of in-service training per year. They usually handle one case at a time, which requires an average of 85 hours, often over many weeks and months. The volunteer work is intense but immensely rewarding. A Monroe County juvenile court judge has said, "Children;'s lives have been saved because CASAs have done their work -- and done it well."

CASA provides specific and meaningful training to equip volunteer in how to be successful in advocating for the best interest of children who have been removed from their home. This is an opportunity to help present and future generations and our overall community.

I feel that children should be in a safe, stable home.
