CASA celebrates 30 years in Elkhart County

Posted:

A program helping abused and neglected children in Elkhart County is celebrating an exciting milestone.

CASA celebrated 30 years of working with Elkhart County Child and Parent services on Monday night.

CASA stands for court appointed special advocates. They provide support for children who are in the court system because of abuse and neglect.

The program director says it's exciting to mark so many years of hardworking volunteers who help children.

"There have been hundreds of volunteers working for thousands of kids who have been victims of abuse and neglect," CASA coordinator Justin Allen says, "And we thought 30 years would be a good opportunity to celebrate the work that people have done in the past and the work people are currently doing."

In attendance at the celebration tonight was the judge who brought the CASA program to Elkhart County in 1983.
