About Towaliga CASA
Towaliga CASA is a 501c3 non-profit that recruits, screens, trains, and supervises volunteers to serve as the Guardian Ad Litem for children (foster children) in Juvenile Court Dependency cases in the Towaliga Judicial Circuit.
We are looking for men and women who are concerned about children in our communities whose families are not providing the care and protection that the children need. You must be willing to be an advocate for the best interests of a child until that child returns home or achieves permanency through guardianship or adoption. We ask for at least a one-year commitment or longer if the child remains in foster care.
“Volunteers don’t get paid, not because they’re worthless, but because they’re priceless.”
– Sherry Anderson
To be a CASA volunteer a person must be at least 21 years old, pass a child abuse screening and a criminal background check, have good verbal & written communication skills, and have access to a computer. There are eight training sessions and two Court observations, totaling approximately 30 hours, required before a volunteer is sworn in by the Juvenile Court Judge.
Contact our office via email to Danita Crawford ([email protected]) or Mary Ann Leverett ([email protected]). Or you can call us at 770-289-5017 or 478-394-0315. We will be glad to send you information about our program and if you want we will send you paperwork to apply and begin the approval process.
