- Our volunteers, who are appointed by the Marion County Superior Court, visit with the child, contact caseworkers, interview parents, look out for medical and educational needs and provide the court with information to help the judge make an informed decision as to what is in the child’s best interest. Volunteers with Child Advocates ensure each child is placed in a safe, permanent home as soon as possible and that they don’t fall through the cracks of an overburdened system. Volunteers must be at least 21 years old and a high school graduate; successfully complete and pass the screening requirements of Child Advocates (including a criminal history check, Child Protective Services (CPS) check and Sex Offender check); submit an application and attend an Information Session prior to the first day of training. Volunteers cannot be a licensed foster parent with Marion County wards in your home or be employed at an agency that holds a service provider contract with the Marion County Department of Child Services (DCS). The site locations will vary.
