Thank you in your interest in becoming a volunteer with Kids’ Voice of Indiana. There are two ways you can provide a much-needed voice for children in the Marion County court system. Each opportunity has its own training, and you can choose one or both!
Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) Volunteer:
As the CASA program for Marion County, Kids’ Voice is appointed to “be the voice in court” for all Indy’s children who have been abused or neglected. Studies have shown that kids who have experienced abuse or neglect fare better with a CASA volunteer by their side. They are more likely to find a safe and permanent home, succeed in school, and are half as likely to re-enter foster care, according to National CASA.
Guardian ad Litem (GAL) Volunteer:
Kids’ Voice also provides GAL volunteers for children in family law cases, such as divorces, adoptions, guardianship and other custody cases. Representing a child’s best interest in a family law case can often prevent them from experiencing abuse and neglect.
If you are interested in volunteering as a CASA or GAL (or both), please complete the short Volunteer Interest form below and someone will be in contact with you about our next training.
