CASA is central to fulfilling society’s most fundamental obligation by making sure a qualified, compassionate adult will fight for and protect a child’s right to be safe, to be treated with dignity and respect and to learn and grow in the safe embrace of a loving family. You can lift up a child’s voice. A child’s life.
Why are CASA volunteers so important?
CASA volunteers are deeply committed, specially trained to advocate for each child’s best interest and how to get those interests met by the system; they fight against all odds, power and bureaucracy; fight until
each child can understand and advocate for his unalienable rights; fight so children can live a life of destiny, rather than fate.
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.
