Are you a 5k novice? Do you want to use your passion for a cause?

CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) is an organization that speaks up for abused and neglected children in Houston County, Georgia and we're looking for some SuperFriends to coordinate our annual Superhero 5k/1 mile fun run.

Due to COVID-19, we have moved to a virtual event. Everything is posted on our Social Media sites. CASA Superhero 5k/1mile fun run will be held during the entire month of April (Child Abuse Prevention & Awareness Month.

The blueprint is here....All we need is...YOU! One or two committed and dependable people who can pull it all together with an awesome committee of Superfriends to make it happen.

Children need heroes, but abused children need Superheroes. (TM)

Mission Statement

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.

Description

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.
