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.

3 Great Ways to Make a Back-to-School Donation

August is almost halfway over, and that means that a new school year is right around the corner. Notebooks will need to be bought, pantries will need to be stocked and long division will need to be reviewed, all before the first day of school. It might seem like August and September are too packed with errands and activities to make a thoughtful donation, but these ideas will help you make a big difference without adding extra items to your to-do list:

- Donate school supplies. Many families can’t afford to purchase all of the school supplies their children needs. Check with your school or look for a local school supply drive. You can contribute anything from a pack of No. 2 pencils to backpacks.

- Ask principals, teachers, secretaries, nurses and other members of the school staff what they need. Often members of a school’s staff will pay for necessary classroom items out-of-pocket so that they don’t have to place an additional burden on students’ families. Asking them what supplies they need for their offices and classrooms is extremely kind and will ultimately benefit the entire school.

- Find a food backpack program. Several awesome organizations have backpack programs that send food home with children on nights and weekends so that they don’t have to go hungry or miss out on eating nutritious food. Before you go grocery shopping for all of the sack lunches you’ll be packing, check out one of these organizations’ list of food items that they’re looking for.
