Houston County Juvenile Justice Complex, 206 Carl Vinson Parkway, Warner Robins, GA 31088, US
To recruit, train, supervise & retain culturally responsive volunteers to advocate for the "best interest" of abused and/or neglected children in Houston County; one child at a time.
Every year more than half a million abused and neglected children are in need of safe, permanent, nurturing homes. That's where CASA steps in. CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) was created in 1977 to make sure the abuse and neglect these children originally suffered at home doesn't continue as abuse and neglect at the hands of the system. As trained advocates, CASA volunteers are appointed by judges to be a voice for these children in court. The result is that a child is placed into a safe, loving home where he/she can thrive. It is the CASA vision to provide a volunteer for each and every abused and neglected child who needs one.
