CASA of Marion County Honors Volunteers, Supporters

FAIRMONT -

The Court Appointed Special Advocates for Children, or CASA, of Marion County held a special reception Tuesday evening to honor its volunteers and supporters.

CASA volunteers advocate for abused or neglected children in the circuit court system.

Kim Baker, the Director of CASA of Marion County, said anyone can be a volunteer.

"It's a layman's perspective. Our CASA volunteers come from all walks of life. So it's just a common person getting a relationship with that child, knowing that child, visiting that child, and then making recommendations to the court," said Baker.

CASA of Marion County has advocated for 75 children this year. That number was represented by candles at the reception.
