Mission

Child Advocates is appointed by the Marion County Courts to represent the best interests of children who have been abused and neglected by their families.

Program Description

Programs

Juvenile Court Program - Child Advocates’ primary goal is to assign a caring, trained volunteer to act as an advocate for each child whose parents have abdicated that role through abuse and/or neglect of that child.

Family Crisis Advocacy Program -Child Advocates is appointed to represent the best interests of children who are the subject of custody disputes and who have been abused and/or neglected.

Mediation - When the Marion County Department of Child Services begins proceedings to terminate the parent/child relationship, mediation can often achieve more positive outcomes than a trial.

Youth Advocate Program - Youth transitioning out of foster care at age 18 are often released from the State’s custody without a viable plan of action. Our Youth Advocate Program works with the youth in accessing necessary services and benefits. We build and nurture connections to local and national colleges and universities to help promote the transition from high school to college.
