Court Appointed Special Advocate for children

Save to Favorites

Gordon County CASA Program

  • 38 people are interested

A Court Appointed Special Advocate is a trained community volunteer who is appointed by a judge to advocate for the best interests of an abused or neglected chidl in juvenile court proceedings.

The CASA volunteer gathers information about the child's situation, attends court proceedings and submits a written report to the judge and other parties in the case so that the judge has the information to make a decision about the child's future. The CASA volunteer advocates for the child to be placed in a safe, permanent home as quickly as possible.

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.
