Fulton County CASA is committed to providing trained, supervised volunteers to actively advocate for abused and neglected children, one child at a time.
Every day in Fulton County, children are thrust into the child welfare system. Often these children become the victims of a complexed system too overburdened to give thorough, detailed attention to each child. That is why CASA volunteer advocates are so important. They have the time to focus only on the child's needs - now and for the future, one child at a time.
A Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) is a trained community volunteer appointed by a judge to speak up for the best interests of an abused or neglected child involved in a juvenile court deprivation proceeding. The ultimate goal of a CASA volunteer is to help make sure the child has a safe, permanent home.
