Voices for Children, Inc.

Who We Are

Southeastern Indiana Voices for Children, Inc.’s office is located in Batesville, Indiana. We previously served children in both Jefferson and Ripley Counties; however, beginning January 1, 2022 we began solely serving the children of Ripley County. Southeastern Indiana Voices for Children, Inc. is a member of the National CASA Association and the Indiana GAL/CASA network. We adhere to their standards, requirements, and policies.

The Voices of Children Volunteers

Southeastern Indiana Voices for Children, Inc. is helping to make a difference through the Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA)/Guardian ad Litem (GAL) volunteer program. These volunteers are recruited and trained to advocate for children’s best interests inside and outside the courtroom. They work with attorneys, mental health professionals, and service providers to meet the needs of these children and help them find safe permanent homes.

There is a great need for more volunteers in our area, as you can imagine. To qualify as a CASA/GAL volunteer, you must be 21 years of age, a mature adult, have reliable transportation, and submit to a background check.

Make a difference in the life of an abused or neglected child

Most importantly, you must love children with a passion and desire to help these children who cannot help themselves.

The Children We Serve

Each year in Ripley county, nearly 100 abused and neglected children face the future without a home to call their own. These children are often placed in foster care, whether it is with a foster family or a group home placement. However, many child victims are left in their homes where the abuse occurred. These children have done nothing wrong but are simply victims of abuse, neglect, or abandonment. As reports of abuse and neglect crowd court dockets, more and more children are navigating this confusing system maze. In Indiana, the statistics show that incidents of child abuse have increased each year consistently for the past three years.

“It’s not about the Income; it is about the Outcome.”
