WHAT IS CASA
The CASA Program recruits, trains and supports volunteers who serve as advocates to children who are in the court system as victims of abuse and/or neglect. CASA volunteers are appointed by the court. The CASA’s major role is to recommend a course of action to the court that is in the child’s best interest. The ultimate goal is to make sure each child has a safe and permanent home. The Montgomery County CASA Program is certified through the Indiana Office of GAL/CASA and the National Court Appointed Special Advocates Association.
