These programs recruit, screen, train, and supervise CASA volunteers — specially-trained adults appointed by the court to improve a child’s experience in foster care. CASA volunteers provide compassionate, individualized attention to help each child find a safe, permanent home when reunification isn’t likely.

“To give a child a CASA volunteer is to give them a voice. To give them a voice is to give them hope, and to give them hope is to give them the world.”

Social Media Takeover! Join us in recognizing Lori Derhammer for 20 year of service!

As the Communications and Donor Relations Manager, Lori spearheads internal and external communications, including newsletters, social media, donor appeals, acknowledgement and recognition, proposals, and grant reporting as well as board and fundraising coordination. Lori is an integral part in our marketing, recruitment, and fundraising activities, as well as outreach and storytelling, all of which have exponentially increased in recent years. Behind the scenes, Lori oversees the annual signature event, ensuring a tireless group of volunteers are supported and immersed in raising awareness and funds for the CASA mission. Lori ensures that the CASA mission and its people are at the forefront of all that we do and remain the driving force for our future success.

Her reach and scope are far-reaching without any necessary fanfare or grand gestures. Never expectant and always appreciative, Lori brings calm and reassurance to all those around her. Our team wouldn’t be complete without Lori sharing CASA’s impact far and wide. The next time you see a post, article, video, advertisement, email, award, or tribute mentioning Georgia CASA, know that you too have been impacted by Lori’s work and diligence, not just once but many times before and many more times to come.
