    CASA Case Highlight - "Jonathan" and "Cindy"

    In order to illustrate and bring awareness to the need for Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) volunteers in our local community, Advocates for Children will be highlighting one case each month which is currently on our waiting list.  Identifying information has been altered in order to protect the privacy of the families involved in these cases.

    Every day, CASA volunteers are working hard to guarantee that every child has the opportunity to thrive in a safe, loving, and permanent home.  

    In 2017 alone, our advocates provided services to over 1,000 children in Bartholomew, Decatur and Jennings counties.  Sadly, there are more victims of child abuse and neglect currently on our waiting list, without an advocate standing by their side.  You can help change that.

    You can provide the support these children deserve.

    With a CASA volunteer standing by their side, a child is likely to perform better in school, is likely to receive more services during their time in the child protection system, and is half as likely to re-enter that system once they've left it.  And by breaking the cycle of abuse or neglect, a CASA volunteer can make a difference that lasts for generations.

    Will you make a contribution today, and help lift up the life of a child?

    You can also pledge a monthly recurring contribution by following this link.

    Join the Movement


    Abused and neglected children need more help than the foster care system can provide. A family court judge created the first CASA program 36 years ago so that children’s voices and needs would be represented in his courtroom. Today, the CASA movement is 75,000 volunteers strong, including over 130 volunteers in Bartholomew, Decatur Jennings counties. Yet more than 250 local children still don’t have the hope that a CASA volunteer can offer. You can help us change that—join the CASA movement today.
