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.

How to Keep Your New Year’s Resolutions

It happens every New Year: you say you’re going to pay off your debt, gossip less and exercise more. But, after a month or so, you realize you aren’t sticking to your guns.

If you want to keep your resolutions this year, consider these tips from Cosmopolitan.com.

Focus on one resolution. Committing to more than one thing can be overwhelming, and limits your chance at success. Pick the one habit or behavior you truly want to change and make that your project for the year.

Be specific. “I’m going to save a lot of money” is a nice thought, but it’s impossible to stick to. Consider a more specific goal, like “I’m going to put $100 in my savings account each month.”

Get others on board. Tell your friends and family about your resolutions. They’ll protect you from potential setbacks and hold you accountable. Plus, you’ll try harder to stick to your resolution so you don’t disappoint the people you care about.

Write it down. Putting your goal down on paper and keeping it in constant view will make it feel tangible. Try a post-it note on your computer monitor or car dashboard.

Remember that it’s okay to mess up. If you get derailed from your objective, reframe it as a learning experience and get right back on track.
