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.

Read All About It: Why You Should Support Your Local Library

When was the last time you used your library card? In a world where free ebooks are readily available and you can use Google to find information on basically anything, a local library can seem somewhat obsolete. But what’s often forgotten is that libraries offer so much more than books on a shelf.

These are just a few of the reasons why libraries play a vital role in communities:

- They are cultural hubs. Libraries offer a public space in which community members can gather to interact and exchange ideas.

- They help lower the unemployment rate. Most libraries offer free high-speed internet access, allowing patrons to conduct job searches. Many also provide assistance with resume writing, interviewing and even acquiring basic computer skills.

- They serve as the “people’s university.” Whether someone never had the opportunity for higher education or they simply want to expand their knowledge base, libraries offer textbooks and other resources that can often only be found at other universities.

- They serve as a link between government and citizens. Most libraries help people to understand and use government websites, complete E-government forms and apply for E-government services.

- They are important sources for youth development. Children’s reading groups, tutoring services and other important programs promote quality childhood education.

So how can you help?

- Make a donation. For every $1,000 donated, libraries can receive 179 library visits, circulate 2680 free materials, train 12 patrons through a library program and issue library cards and provide services for 20 new library patrons.

- Volunteer. In most public libraries, anyone over the age of 14 can volunteer. There’s a myriad of activities you can participate in, including everything from reading to young children to staffing bookmobiles.
