|CASA provides advocacy by interested and committed community members for an individual child through the court and government agency processes until their case is resolved. CASA has proven to be a very effective way to achieve what all children deserve....a home which is a safe and caring place to be. CASA supports the work of Judge Chip Perry of the Juvenile Court to ensure he has information on which to make difficult but highly significant decisions on behalf of the children. He was frustrated with the lack of information upon which he had to base decisions regarding the future of abused and neglected children in his court room. He also wanted better options presented to meet the needs of children.|
You can work full time and still be a CASA advocate.
We recruit, screen, train and support people who wish to become advocates for children.
Advocates have to agree to FBI report checks, and 40 hours of training in workshops and observations in court.
We need volunteers to become advocates for children and/or to help with projects designed to prevent child abuse and teen pregnancy. Additionally, Decatur County and its adjacent counties need an emergency shelter/group home to serve the children. CASA also needs to raise funds to support the work of the advocates and the organization. If you or your organization can help, and want to make the next step in making a difference for children, for their families and for their community, please contact me.
