Welcome to the Marshall County, Indiana CASA website.  We established this web site to provide information about the services that the CASA organization provides to the abused and neglected children in our community.  Feel free to contact us with any questions that you may have regarding CASA.

 

A Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) is a trained volunteer who is appointed by a judge to represent the best interests of a child in court.  These children are victims of abuse and/or neglect and are in the court system through no fault of their own.

 

There is a strong need for child advocates.  In November of 2012 there were 72 identified children of abuse/neglect who were in need of services here in Marshall County.

 

There are no special background or educational requirements for a CASA volunteer, only the dedication to our most vulnerable and valuable assets of Marshall County—our children.  Extensive training will focus on child development, family dynamics, communication, the court system, and working with others.

 

You cannot control where abused and/or neglected children come from, but you can have something to do with where they end up.  Please browse our website or contact CASA at 574-935-8723 or 574-952-1443 for further information on how to make a difference—'one child at a time'.

 

The fall 2014 training dates will be September - October on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6:00-9:00 pm.  CASA will host the training sessions at the Life Enrichment Center in Plymouth, Indiana.  Final dates will be set later.
