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.

Prospective CASA 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.
