WHY VOLUNTEER WITH CASA?
Right now, hundreds of abused and neglected children in Vermilion and Edgar County
are in the middle of a tremendous tug-of-war. Unfortunately, these children
are involved (by no fault of their own) with the juvenile court and child
welfare systems. These kids need an advocate whom they can depend on to fight
for them and their best interests.
That's where CASA comes in. Well-trained, caring, court-appointed special advocates study the child's case,
develop a relationship with the child, and become the child's voice in the courtroom. No one else
in the process speaks solely for the child. That's why CASA is so important.
