Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
We believe every child deserves a safe, permanent home. Therefore, we train and provide ongoing mentoring to child advocate volunteers. These Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) work with abused and neglected children in Forsyth County, Georgia. CASAs speak on behalf of the child's best interests, until the child is in a safe and permanent home.
Every abused or neglected child in foster care should have an advocate (CASA volunteer) to provide several services that include reporting to the court what action is in that child's best interest to obtain a safe home and a permanent home as quickly as possible. CASA is the only agency that can provide direct services to abused children in foster care. A CASA volunteer is recognized by the state of Georgia as a guardian ad litem, which holds a volunteer to the same confidentiality standards as any Juvenile Court official.
