What is casa?
Each year, thousands of children in Georgia who have experienced abuse or neglect are placed in foster care.
They live in our communities and neighborhoods. These children should be treated with dignity and respect — not merely survive. They deserve the chance to live in a safe and permanent home when reunification with their parents isn’t likely. Gwinnett CASA helps ensure that a qualified, compassionate adult — a CASA volunteer — will bring a sense of urgency to these children’s needs – by amplifying their voices – and by improving their experiences in foster care.
Gwinnett Court Appointed Special Advocates develop and support court-sanctioned, community-based affiliate programs that provide trained and supervised volunteers to advocate for the best interests of abused and neglected children involved in juvenile court dependency proceedings.
Each abused or neglected child involved in juvenile court proceedings shall have a safe and permanent home.
Gwinnett CASA provides the highest level of advocacy for all of Gwinnett's dependent children.
Become a Volunteer
CASA volunteers are everyday people from all walks of life who advocate for the well-being of Gwinnett's children who experience foster care. They are specially trained and appointed by the court to amplify these children's voices and to improve their well-being while they are engaged in foster care. Their sole purpose is to provide compassionate, individualized attention that will help each child in foster care find a safe, permanent home when reunification isn’t likely.
