About Atlanta CASA
There is a need to advocate for abused and neglected children in Fulton County's court system. The court system can be very difficult for families to navigate. The average child will spend more than two years in foster care and those children will change homes an average of three times. Thus, Atlanta CASA provides the support to ensure that children and families do not get lost in the overburdened legal and social service system or languish in foster care.
To be a leading voice for abused and neglected children significantly improving their quality of life by providing personalized, timely, culturally-sensitive representation in juvenile court.
To educate the community and to recruit, train and supervise court appointed volunteers to advocate for the best interest, safety, and permanent placement of abused and neglected children in foster care within Fulton County, Georgia.
Our programs seek to find safe and permanent homes for children in Fulton County Georgia foster care, ages 0 - 18, as quickly as possible while ensuring that all of the child’s needs are met for healthy development.
Atlanta Court Appointed Special Advocates (Atlanta CASA) is a non-profit 501c (3) organization established in 1995 by Fulton County Judges in partnership with the Junior League of Metropolitan Atlanta.
