A Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) is a trained
community volunteer that speaks up for the best interests of abused and
neglected children in the Tippecanoe County court system. By monitoring their
assigned case closely and advocating for the needs of the child, volunteers give
a voice to our county's most vulnerable children by being independent fact-finders
and facilitators for change.
volunteers must complete an application and participate in a screening
interview prior to being considered for training. Training consists of 30 hours
of classroom instruction and observation of court room proceedings.
