Programs in Need

CASA – Court Appointed Special Advocate

CASA volunteers are judge-appointed to assist with determining the best possible outcome for abused, neglected, or exploited children on a case-by-case basis. Despite the state’s attempts to help, these children may become trapped in the court and child welfare maze spending their childhood moving from one temporary shelter to another. CASA becomes the voice of these children. CASA serves Cumberland, Overton, and Putnam County.

Van Buren County Head Start

The Head Start program is a system of early childhood development programs serving three to five year old children from lower income families in our community. Donations go toward supplies for the classroom as well as transportation, medical, dental, nutritional and mental health services for the children.

CAB of Warren County

The purpose of this advisory board is to safeguard and enhance the welfare of children and to preserve family life, by preventing harm and abuse to children and by strengthening the ability of families to parent their children effectively through a multi-level response system using available community-based public and private services. Preservation of the family should serve as the framework for services.

Group Homes

The CHANCE Residential Center for girls and Indian Mound Residential Center for boys provide safe, structured environments to teens that are wards of the State. Although State contracts provide basic shelter, clothing, and food, teens also need school fees paid, appropriate clothing, and education about wholesome forms of entertainment. Your donation will give teens these important extra benefits.
