Georgia CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) works diligently with Georgia’s children who have been removed from their homes on account of neglect or abuse. For years, CASA volunteers have helped find healthy, permanent homes for children in the state’s foster care system and put their lives back on track.
CASA volunteers aim to represent Georgia’s children on an individual level, to identify a child’s specific situation and needs, and help them into a brighter future.
To read more about Georgia CASA and hear some of their success stories, visit the Georgia CASA website.
