VIGO COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) - Hundreds of Vigo County children are in need of advocates.

That's why one local university is stepping up to do its part.

Indiana State University held a meeting on Monday.

It's focused on getting faculty, staff, and students participating in the Court Appointed Special Advocate program.

It's also known as CASA.

The program gives children going through the court system a voice.

Organizers say it's all about working for a child's best interest.

There are around 170 kids on the waitlist.

Vigo County CASA serves about 500 children.
