Welcome to Children's Voice: CASA, Inc.

Children's Voice: CASA, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, located in Douglas County, Georgia, committed to recruit, train and support citizen-volunteers to advocate for the best interests of children, who have been abused and neglected, in courtrooms and our community. We are empowered directly by the courts and provide judges the critical information they need to ensure that each child’s rights and needs are being attended to while in foster care. Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) volunteers stay with children until they are placed in loving permanent homes. For many children, a CASA volunteer is the only constant adult presence in their lives.

We exist to raise awareness of children in foster care and bring positive, permanent change to their lives. With your help we can make a difference. Our website furthers our mission by providing ways for you to learn more and get involved.

Thanks for visiting. We are looking forward to hearing from you.

4 Reasons Why You Should Pay Your Employees to Volunteer

Many people want a chance to give back to their community, but between managing a family and a career, it can be almost impossible to find the time. Several businesses are now changing that by offering their employees opportunities to volunteer. According to the Society for Human Resource Management, more than 20% of the companies it surveys offer paid volunteering time, a number that is growing rapidly.

The ways in which companies do this varies greatly. Some offer a certain amount of days for paid volunteering, some will compensate for a specific number of hours and others even offer a month-long sabbatical at a charitable organization of the employee’s choice. No matter which approach is used, these programs have proven to have incredible benefits:

They foster a compassionate company culture.
When employees have the chance to team up and have a positive impact on the community, it fosters teamwork and camaraderie.

They attract young and talented employees.
Young professionals have a deep desire to give back. Offering a paid volunteering program sets businesses apart and makes them incredibly appealing to this demographic of innovative and socially responsible individuals.

They make employees happier.
Having the chance to dedicate time to a cause that they feel is important is a huge morale booster for employees, particularly when they don’t have to worry about missing out on work or pay. It can even benefit them professionally if they choose to donate their time and expertise to an organization in need of their specific skills. This leads to higher employee engagement and retention.

They give companies a chance to give back, even if they aren’t social ventures.
Social ventures are wonderful, but not every company is or can be one. Corporate volunteerism programs allow businesses to have an incredibly positive impact on their communities without entirely restructuring their business model.
