LOCAL Closer Look: CASA, The Voice of Clark County's Children

Posted on Sunday, February 13, 2022 by Sarah Shaver

Sarah Shaver spoke with Shannon Holt, Executive Director of Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA), The Voice of Clark County’s (Indiana) Children. Holt explained what a CASA is and who they are meant to help, acting their role in the court system, acting as the eyes and ears for a judge in cases of abused and neglected children while they’re in the system. She said children without a CASA are essentially lost in the system and their needs would very often be overlooked, whether it was for medical care, education, or to see a family member or friend.  A judge once told her, “The CASA is the keeper of the child’s story.”
