Help Us Change a Child’s Story!
Spring is right around the corner, and it's a great time to join our team! Help Change a Child’s Story by becoming a CASA Volunteer! Many local children in foster care are waiting for a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) volunteer to be by their side. CASA volunteers are regular people -- stay-at-home moms, retirees, teachers, or business people. All it takes is a heart and a willingness to speak up for a child’s best interest. We recruit, screen, train, and support people just like you!
The gift of time as a volunteer is one of the most valuable things you can give to impact the lives of our children. So many volunteers speak of how rewarding their time as a CASA has been. We hope you will consider making a resolution to be a light in the life of a child experiencing foster care.
You must be at least 21 years of age, able to pass a background check, and successfully complete 30 hours of training and 10 hours of courtroom observation.
The next child advocate training session for Gilmer, Fannin, and Pickens counties begins Tuesday, March 5, 2024. If you are interested in learning more about the CASA program and the rewards that come along with serving as the voice of a child, visit our website, appalachiancasa.com.
