Our Mission:

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.

Help us provide a suitcase for every child in foster care so that they have a way to carry their belongings. Click here for more info.

Mondays and Thursdays – August 15, 2016 – September 19, 2016
