I am for the child.

Coweta CASA volunteers advocate for children that have been removed from their homes due to neglect and abuse.

They do this by:

  • gathering information about the child's situation
  • attending court proceedings
  • making a recommendation to the judge to help the court make a sound decision about the child's future

Many workers in the child welfare system are often too overburdened to give detailed attention to each child. A CASA volunteer can give the child what others
do not have - TIME.

These children deserve a safe permanent home. Help make a difference - one child at a time. Speak up for an abused or neglected child in court.

Mission Statement

The mission of CASA is to speak for the best interests of abused and neglected children in the courts. We promote and support quality volunteer representation for children to provide each child a safe, permanent, nurturing home.

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.
