What does a CASA volunteer do?
CASA volunteers are everyday people from all walks of life who do exceptional work. They are trained to advocate for the well-being of Georgia’s children experiencing foster care and are appointed by the court to advocate for each child’s best interest. That’s their sole purpose. CASA volunteers are appointed to the case of a child (or sibling group) and establish a one-on-one relationship with the child, gather information about the child’s situation and unique history, ensure the child has access to necessary services, attend juvenile court proceedings, and make a recommendation to the judge about what’s in the child’s best interest.
