Court Appointed Special Advocates® (CASA) are community volunteers, just like you, who stand up and speak out to help abused and neglected children. Our CASAs advocate for child victims of abuse and neglect right here in our Forsyth County community.
Our CASA program belongs to a network of 951 community-based programs around the United States that recruit, train and support citizen-volunteers to advocate for the best interests of abused and neglected children in courtrooms and communities.
Please consider joining our CASA team as we strive to make Forsyth County a stronger community!
We are dedicated to providing EVERY foster child a new backpack (stuffed with grade-specific school supplies) to begin their 2018-19 school year! You may hear of other local school supply drives such as "Stuff the Bus." While these programs are valuable and worthwhile they are different than this CASA backpack drive. Our hope is to ensure we have a new stuffed backpack for EVERY FOSTER CHILD served by OUR Forsyth County CASA program. How can you help? Click here...
Become a foster child's voice—apply to be an Advocate for for our foster children through CASA of Forsyth County. A sad statistic: there were over 15,000 children in Georgia foster care in 2017! We need more volunteers to advocate on behalf of the foster children we serve here in Forsyth County!
Interested? APPLY NOW to join us for an intensive 4 day weekend CASA training class THIS JULY 14, 15 and 21, 22nd! You must complete an application and interview prior to attending training.
Another training class for new CASA volunteers will begin September 14th and end in early November, 2018.
