Every year, more than 14,000 abused and neglected children in Georgia are in foster care because they are unable to live safely at home. The number of foster children in Glynn County alone usually numbers 197-210 on any given month.
Imagine what it would be like to lose your parents, not because of something you did, but because they can’t – or won’t – take care of you. Now into these children’s lives come dozens of strangers: police, foster parents, therapists, social workers, judges, lawyers and more. Hopefully, one of these strangers is a CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate).
CASA Glynn volunteers watch over and advocate for those abused and neglected children to make sure that each child is safe and move quickly through the system. Each child has an advocate appointed by the Juvenile Court, who investigates, researches and advocates for that child’s best interests. The volunteer stays with each case until it is closed and that child is placed in a safe, stable and permanent home. For many children, their CASA volunteer will be the one constant adult presence during their ordeal.
