Child Advocates focuses on transforming the child welfare system by addressing the significant gaps and barriers that prevent children from experiencing stability in a safe and permanent home and reaching their full potential.
A long-time leader in protecting and promoting the well-being of youth in Indiana, Child Advocates core programming includes the Child Permanency Program, the Direct Representation Program, the Department of Mental Health & Addiction’s High Fidelity & Wraparound program, and a comprehensive menu of legal services that are designed to provide support to children, caregivers, and Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA programs) throughout the state in resolving legal issues and advocating with the Department of Child Services (DCS) to resolve issues that prevent a permanent placement.
