CASA volunteers are individuals who have eyes to recognize; ears to hear; hands to help and a heart to heal children in foster care. Volunteers assist the court in making an informed decision about the child’s permanency. Be the voice for children in Atlanta. During the COVID outbreak, informational sessions and parts of the 40-hour required training are going virtual, so you can get started today. Volunteers should be willing to commit to at least a year of service in the role, and be prepared to undergo background checks, interviews and more.
