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.

Back Bends May Lead to Benevolence

Yoga can be intimidating, but once you try a class, you’ll feel all the physical and mental health benefits. This Eastern practice has proliferated throughout the West with more than 20 million Americans practicing yoga. Scientific research has shown a multitude of benefits from yoga, even more than traditional exercise like weight lifting and running. Notably, the practice of yoga teaches students to be more forgiving, more loving and spread kindness throughout the world. By practicing yoga, you may live a more altruistic life. Here are just a few more of the benefits of yoga:

Relieves stress—Yoga allows you to take a break from your smartphone, agenda and hectic lifestyle. Clearing your mind and focusing on mastering yoga poses allows a mental hiatus. Meditation at the end of class helps relieve stress, too. Relieving stress means less physical ailments, less mental ailments, and more youthful-looking skin.

Strength training and flexibility—Yoga encourages flexibility by continually stretching throughout the practice. By holding one pose for a minute or two, your body is lifting and holding its own body weight. After practicing for awhile, you’ll notice a considerable increase in muscle mass.

Increases cardio health—While yoga is a great strength training and flexibility exercise, it also increases heart health by infusing cardio. Increase your metabolism and heart health while moving quickly into different poses. It’s the best of the both worlds.
