We are looking for people that want to make a difference in a child's life...if this is you, please consider becoming a CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) volunteer!
CASA volunteers are appointed to children who are in our local foster care system through the Juvenile Court. They gather information about their situation through contacting the child's school, doctors, case managers, foster parents, family members, and more. But most importantly, they build a meaningful relationship with the child to find out what are the child's wishes and what is in the best interest.
The gathered information is presented to the Judge along with the CASA volunteer's recommendations. This assists the Judge in the decisions that are made for the child's permanency, well-being, and safety.
If you can see yourself making a connection with a child in care and advocating for their needs, please do not hesitate to call or email us today!

About Chattahoochee CASA - A Division of Twin Cedars Youth & Family Services
1225 3rd Avenue, Columbus, GA 31901, US
The mission of CASA is to provide carefully screened, trained and supervised volunteers to advocate for the best interest of children in deprivation cases yielding a safe and permanent home that is developed and maintained.
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.
