CASA of the Alapaha Judicial Circuit


Our Vision for CASA of the Alapaha Judicial Circuit is for all children that are in foster care to have a CASA Volunteer that will represent their needs and concerns in court proceedings. All children deserve to have a VOICE.


CASA of the Alapaha Judicial Circuit advocates for children that are in foster care in the Alapaha Judicial Circuit: Atkinson, Berrien, Clinch, Cook and Lanier.The CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) program is central to fulfilling society’s most fundamental obligation by making sure a qualified, compassionate adult will fight for and protect a child’s right to be safe, to be treated with dignity and respect and to learn and grow in the safe embrace of a loving family.

The lives and well-being of children are hanging in the balance. Every child who cannot live safely at home should have a CASA volunteer who will help ensure their safe passage out of foster care, to the benefit of their children, and generations to come.

A CASA volunteer is an independent voice, advocates for the best interest of abused and neglected children involved in juvenile court deprivation proceedings. CASA of the Alapaha Judicial Circuit provides screened, trained and supervised volunteers who speak up for the needs of these children, one child at a time.
