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.

Green Cleaning Tips

We commonly clean our home to get rid of toxins, pollutants and to keep us healthy, but what if those products we use to clean are actually doing more harm than good? 17,000 petrochemicals (chemical products derived from petroleum) are available for home use, but only 30 percent of them have been tested for exposure to human health. Synthetic chemicals account for many of the products in our lives and can eventually lead to cancer through exposure. Take precaution and protect yourself and your family with these three tips:

Use the right products—Take a look at the cleaning products you use now. Do they have peroxide in them? Do they say “100 percent organic” or “EPA-approved” on the label? If not, then it may be time to toss them. Look for green cleaning products at your local superstore with the correct labels. Carefully throw away your old cleaners at chemical recycling sites in your community.

Check your air quality—Keep your family out of harm’s way with good indoor air quality. Most times, the air inside a home or office is at a higher risk for toxins than the air outside. Improve your home air quality by keeping the windows open as much as possible, especially when cleaning or painting the inside of the house.

Clean up germs—We usually jump to antibacterial and antimicrobial cleaners for messes, but it’s more important to use the right products in the right way. Antibacterial products aren’t more effective than regular soap and warm water, and they actually increase the risk of super germs that survive chemical cleaners.
