CASA volunteers provide support for child victims awaiting a safe place to live. Information and recommendations from CASA volunteers help to expedite the court process and provide better outcomes for children under the state’s protection. Attend an information session to learn more about how you can help.
Each year, more than 251,000 children have the support of a CASA volunteer, but hundreds of thousands are still waiting. With your support, we can reach every child in need. Donations support the recruitment and training of volunteer advocates who serve our community's children.

Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) is central to fulfilling society’s most fundamental obligation by making sure a qualified, compassionate adult will fight for and protect every child’s right to be safe, to be treated with dignity and respect, and to learn and grow in the security of a loving family.
Fulton County CASA is a volunteer-powered program which provides representation in juvenile court for child victims of physical abuse, sexual abuse, and neglect. The program recruits, screens, trains, and supervises adult community members who volunteer their time to serve as Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASAs), with full legal authority set forth by the State of Georgia. CASAs provide advocacy to child victims to ensure that they remain at the forefront of the court proceedings and find a safe, permanent home as quickly as possible.
Who We Are
Fulton County Court Appointed Special Advocates for Children (CASA) trains special advocates to represent abused and neglected children in the Fulton County (Georgia) Court System. Our advocates fight for the best interest of children in court and ensure that the children find safe, permanent homes.
Our Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASAs) stand up for safety and stability for abused and neglected children. They represent these children in court, ensuring that their cases are well managed.
Our CASAs are responsible individuals trained to serve as Court Appointed Special Advocates. Fulton County CASA provides them with the support and resources they need to protect abused and neglected children in Fulton County.
Our volunteers complete a rigorous 40-hour pre-service training course to become Court Appointed Special Advocates. Once all requirements have been satisfied, they are sworn in by a juvenile court judge as officers of the court and are assigned a case.
Our CASAs give a substantial contribution of time and personal commitment to ensuring that neglected and abused children are well represented.
