Appalachian CASA trains and supervises community volunteers who advocate for the best interests of abused or neglected children in foster care in juvenile court proceedings. The children we serve live in the Appalachian Judicial Circuit, which includes Fannin, Gilmer and Pickens counties. We advocate for the best interests of these children...one child at a time.
-Is appointed by a juvenile court judge
-Gathers information regarding the child's case
-Attends all court proceedings
-Gives an independent report to the judge regarding the best interests of the child
-Has time to give to the child since each volunteer handles only one or two cases at a time
