Vigo County CASA, the Court Appointed Special Advocates, have moved into a new office space at the Annex.
Today they held an open house to thank Annex employees for their support, as well as show the community what they provide for the children in the area.
CASA advocates for the abused and neglected children of the Wabash Valley.
As of right now they are serving 785 children, with 140 on a waiting list.
Director Glenna Cheesman says the new space will allow for staff to better serve the children.
“It us gives the opportunity for the staff members to be able to do their jobs. They’ll be able to bring family members in,” said Cheesman. “Be able to talk to different people, have meetings and things in a more confidential more private manor. And that is key for what we do.”
CASA is in need of more volunteer workers to help take care of the children.
