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.

7 Tips to Overcome Negative Thoughts

When we start to have negative thoughts, it can be difficult to break the cycle. Try these 7 tips from TinyBuddha.com.

Meditate or do yoga. Yoga and meditation take your attention away from negative thoughts, and place the attention on your breath.

Smile. Smiling has been proved to help change your mood and relieve stress.

Surround yourself with positive people. Call a friend who can give you constructive, yet loving feedback. When you’re stuck in a negative spiral, talk to people who can put things into perspective and won’t feed your negative thinking.

Change the tone of your thoughts from negative to positive. For example, instead of thinking, “We are going to have a hard time adjusting to our living situation,” think, “We will face some challenges in our living situation, but we will come up with solutions that we will both be happy with.”

Don’t play the victim. You create your life—take responsibility. There’s a way out of any situation. You simply have to make the choice to change.

Help someone. Take the focus away from you and do something nice for another person. You’ll feel better.

Remember that no one is perfect. It’s easy to dwell on your mistakes. Instead, learn from them and move forward.
