Our Mission:  To provide a Court Appointed Special Advocate for abused, neglected or dependent children in juvenile court proceedings.  Volunteers will advocate for the best interests of the children in an effective, timely, professional manner until the case is permanently resolved.

Every year, abused, neglected or dependent children of Darke County are in need of safe, permanent, nurturing homes. They have no family to call their own and spend years of their childhood moving from one temporary home to another, sometimes getting lost in the system. As CASA, we become these children's voice in the court and advocate for their best interests.

To learn more about becoming a CASA volunteer, please contact Kay Robbins at (937) 547-9091 or krobbins@darkeprobatejuvenile.org.
