About

CASA volunteers are specifically trained individuals from all walks of life who advocate for the well-being of Athens and Oconee children in foster care. They are appointed by the court to speak up for the best interest of children.

Providing compassionate, individualized attention to help each child find a safe, permanent home is a CASA volunteer's sole purpose. By meeting with teachers, doctors, lawyers, social workers, and foster parents, they improve the child's representation, both in and out of court.

CASA volunteers are a stable influence in the life of a foster child whose whole world has been turned upside down due to abuse or neglect. They give the child hope by giving them a voice.
