Be the voice of a child in foster care! We will be conducting our new volunteer training soon and we would like you to join us. Upon completion of the training, there will be a swearing-in ceremony with the Juvenile Court Judge.
Our training classes are now virtual. Please visit our website at casapaulding.org. There is an application link and a video that gives more details on our program.
CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) volunteers advocate for the best interests of abused and neglected children in juvenile court. Volunteers must be at least 21 years of age, pass a criminal background check, complete a volunteer application, and be interviewed by CASA staff.
Every day in Georgia, 33 children are the victims of abuse or neglect. On any given day, about 8,000 children are in foster care in Georgia. These children are in need of CASA volunteers. The CASA volunteer gathers information about the child’s situation, attends court proceedings and makes a recommendation to the judge so that the judge has the information to make a decision about the child’s future. A CASA volunteer protects a child’s right to be safe, to be treated with dignity and respect, and to learn and grow in the safe embrace of a loving family.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.

The mission of Court Appointed Special Advocate (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.
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.
We'll work with your schedule.
