CASA of Hancock County is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that utilizes trained community members to advocate for children who through no fault of their own are involved in the complex and overburdened child welfare and youth court systems. CASA relies on the communities support to continue this work. Although the program is comprised of volunteers, there are costs associated with screening, training and supporting volunteer child advocates. Monies raised from the poker run will ensure that the CASA program not only continues to exist but also expands to increase the number of children served.
