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.

United Nations International Day of Happiness

The United Nations focuses strongly on “the pursuit of happiness” as “a fundamental human goal.” The International Day of Happiness was first recognized in 2012 and increases public awareness about happiness and life aspirations as a part of international public policy. Social isolation has become an epidemic, seemingly “twice as deadly as obesity,” according to the United Nations. Here are three ways to celebrate and spread a little happiness in your community:

Join Happiness Actions—In major cities, happiness gatherings are organized to share positive, optimistic thoughts and increase community connection. Activists wear bright “happy” colors and hold signs that say, “You are loved!” and “You are awesome!”

Share Online Positivity—Online relationships are equally crucial to a person’s well-being as in-person relationships. Low web-esteem, a term that defines one’s self-esteem as determined by the internet, can even increase depression and negative thoughts. Share a fun photo, *cyber-hug* someone or like someone’s posts to share positivity.

High-Fives and Random Hugs—There are many groups around the world that organize outside of International Day of Happiness, but have a similar goal: to increase human connection. Get some friends together to share hugs and high-fives. This may sound ridiculous, but it spreads so much positivity and smiles, that a little silliness is worth it.
