To provide trained special advocates for abused or neglected children in the Family Court of Jefferson County, who shall speak for the best interest of children, ensuring safe and permanent homes for each child in the least amount of time possible.
The Court Appointed Special Advocate Program of Jefferson County, Alabama, is part of the Family Court, serving two divisions of Family Court in both Birmingham and Bessemer. Volunteers serve on four of five court dockets, investigating, reporting, monitoring, and making recommendations in the best interest of dependent children. They work closely with the child's attorney Guardian ad Litem, serving in the role of "friend of the court."

helping anyone would be the right thing do because we have so much killing going on and sometimes it start from home and as adults we need to try and teach kids these days its not all about that, i understand that some kids parents aren't around and that plays a part of it, but just because of that they don't have to be that way i worked in a hospital before i got sick and got on disability and have had a lot of dealing with kids due to me working on the different floors in hospital so that's makes a difference to me and i also have kids myself, while employed at hospital i let my daughter do volunteer work at hospital to learn what a job was like and see and experience different things and she enjoyed it. she also see people she no that get into trouble and told me mom i don't want to go through that i said i hope not, while she was in middle school she had issues herself that led her into family court which led me into family court now she's on the right track
