The goal of CASA of Marion County is to serve 100% of the abused and neglected children in Marion County.
The mission of CASA of Marion County is to provide court appointed volunteers to advocate for the best interest of children that have been abused and/or neglected who are involved in the Marion County Juvenile Court System.
CASA stands for Court Appointed Special Advocate. These volunteers are appointed by a judge to advocate on behalf of children who have experienced abuse or neglect. They stay with each case until it is closed and the child is in a safe, permanent home. CASA serves children from birth to 18. Volunteers work with legal and child welfare professionals, educators, and service providers to ensure that the courts have all the information they need to make the best decision for the child.
