CASA of Troup and Heard Counties advocate for the best interests of abused and neglected children within the court system. Our belief is that every child is entitled to a safe, stable and permanent home. We provide screened, trained, and supervised volunteers who speak for the needs of these children, one child at a time. CASA works in collaboration with key agencies, a guardian ad litem and community resources to achieve the child's best interests.
CASA ensures that deprived children have a choice in court.
