Why Are CASA Volunteers So Important?
CASA volunteers are deeply committed and specially trained to advocate for the best interest of abused and neglected children in the court system. CASA volunteers investigate the circumstances of each child and then take their findings and make recommendations to the court. CASA volunteers are willing to fight for these children until their needs are met and their safety is guaranteed. Having a CASA volunteer improves the child’s life and their longterm chances of future success.
How Can You Help?
Through individualized attention, CASA volunteers advocate for the best interests of Georgia’s abused and neglected children. Bringing urgency to a child’s needs, both in and out of the courtroom, CASA volunteers promote safety, permanency and well-being through independent recommendations.
As community partners in the child welfare system, CASA volunteers increase abused and neglected children’s access to services, promote safety, and advocate for timeliness and permanency for children involved in juvenile court proceedings. CASA volunteers are independent advocates and provide individualized attention for children in a massive state system.
