Savannah/Chatham County Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) recruits and trains volunteers to advocate for the best interests of children who have experienced abuse and neglect.
CASA takes a holistic approach to ensure the child’s psychological, physical, educational, and other needs are met while advocating for permanency in the child’s life. CASA volunteers work tirelessly to reduce the amount of time a child spends in foster care by working closely with the Department of Family and Children Services and the Juvenile Court. Studies have shown that a child who is appointed a CASA volunteer spend less time in foster care, have less placement disruptions, and perform better in school.
Our vision is a community where every abused or neglected child is given the opportunity to thrive in a safe and loving home.
