OUR HISTORY

The first CASA program was founded in 1977 in Seattle, Washington by Judge David W. Soukup. He realized that abused and neglected children were often inadvertently re-victimized by overburdened, understaffed and under-resourced courts and public social service agencies.

 

Indiana's CASA program (the Indiana Child Advocates Network) was founded in 1989, and Indiana CASA programs are now located in 86 of Indiana's counties. Indiana state law requires the appointment of either a GAL (attorney guardians ad litems) or a trained CASA volunteer in all Child in Need of Services, or “CHINS” cases, which are abuse and neglect cases.

CASA of Floyd County was created to represent and protect the best interest of children. Staff members and community volunteers are a part of a legal process that ensures these children receive a safe, permanent home. 

HOW YOU CAN HELP

Make a Difference in a Child's Life

Our county officials are working hard to decrease the causes of abuse and neglect, but the reality is that more and more children are in need of our services. Your donation directly impacts the children that need our services. Through your generosity we are able to scale our impact and reach, with the goal of serving every child in need.
