DeKalb County CASA is a non-profit organization that recruits, screens, and trains community volunteers who are appointed by a juvenile court judge to advocate for the best interest of an abused or neglected child placed in foster care. DeKalb County CASA volunteers work with the DeKalb County Juvenile Court and Division of Family and Children Services (DFCS) to ensure that all the necessary information is collected and presented to the court allowing the judge to make the best decision possible regarding placement of the child.

The DeKalb County CASA Program is designed to give abused and neglected children in foster care a powerful voice. DeKalb County CASA recognizes the need for individualized advocacy throughout the court process and utilizes dedicated, concerned, well-trained community volunteers to protect the child’s best interests.
