Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
The Advo-Kids Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) Program is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide trained, screened, and supervised volunteers to advocate for the best interests of abused and neglected children involved in juvenile court deprivation proceedings.
Advo-Kids CASA trains volunteers to help abused and neglected children in the juvenile court system in Fayette and Spalding Counties. A CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) assesses the child's situation through interviews with parents, guardians, caretakers, social workers, and other service providers. The CASA then reports to the judge what is in the best interest for the child. Our goal is to advocate for a safe permanent home for each child.
We have a role after the children have been removed from the home and enter the Georgia court system. A judge can appoint a CASA volunteer, who 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.
