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.

Celebrate Great Outdoors Month in June

School’s out for the summer, and the great outdoors is calling! Whether you have kids or you’re just looking to enjoy the warmer weather, there are plenty of ways to celebrate that also give back to the world we know and love. This is the perfect reminder to get out there, give back and go green, so we can keep the world a beautiful place for years to come. Check out these ideas that you can celebrate Great Outdoors Month throughout June!

 

Pick Up Litter in Your Community

This is an activity that can be done at any age! Organize a group of friends or family to pick up litter on your community streets or parks. You’ll need trash bags, gloves and preferably bright vests if you’ll be near a roadway. Remember—safety first! You’ll enjoy the nice summer air all while preserving our planet. 

 

Give Back to Organizations Devoted to Our Environment

There are a ton of organizations that give back to making the world a better place. Do your research to find an organization that you would love to support. Consider reaching out to the organization to learn more and possibly even volunteer before you decide if you’d like to make a donation. Remember that any way you help a nonprofit organization, no matter how big or small, is making a difference! 

 

Enjoy the Outdoors

Turning off the television and lights while you get outside to go for a hike or play in the park conserves energy! Enjoy mother nature by hiking on a nearby trail, playing an outdoor game, swimming at a local lake or any other outdoor activities in your area. Simply being outdoors is a great way to appreciate Great Outdoors Month!

 

Make a List of Ways You’ll Help

Sit down with your family, roommates or friends and create an action plan for the year to come. Include ways you want to celebrate the outdoors and continue to keep it beautiful. This list can include habits you’d like to change, or good deeds you’d like to perform. To get your list started, here are a few ideas! 

  • Use less water when you brush your teeth
  • Take shorter showers
  • Recycle as much as possible
  • Shop at thrift stores to get gently used versus new
  • Plant trees in your community
  • Plant a garden in your own backyard 

 

June is the first official month of summer, which makes it the perfect opportunity to celebrate the great outdoors! Together, we can make a difference in our world and preserve it for our children, their children and so on. You can do your part by reducing, reusing and recycling, conserving water, planting trees and even simply enjoying mother nature.
