The safety of our CASA volunteers and the children for whom they advocate is of the utmost importance.  CASAs work with their supervisors to identify and weigh considerations about whether to conduct meetings and visits virtually or in-person on a case by case basis.  Porter County CASA has outlined detailed and specific precautionary protocol for carrying out any activity on behalf of CASA during the COVID-19 health crisis according to local, state, and federal guidelines.  Protocol is re-evaluated regularly and subject to change according to the most current information available.  For more information, please call 219-464-9585.
