Each year, hundreds of children in Newton and Walton counties who have experienced abuse or neglect are placed in foster care.
They live in our communities and neighborhoods.
She may be the quiet girl in your son’s class, who had to move homes and change schools three times in the last year. He may be the lonely child at the park who never joins the game.
These children should be treated with dignity and respect — not merely survive. They deserve the chance to live in a safe and permanent home when reunification with their parents isn’t likely.
Alcovy CASA helps ensure that a qualified, compassionate adult — a CASA volunteer — will bring a sense of urgency to these children’s needs – by amplifying their voices – and improve their experiences in foster care.
Alcovy CASA is dedicated to advocating for the best interests of children in the child welfare system. We believe that every child deserves a safe, nurturing, and permanent home. Our mission is to provide a powerful voice for these children by recruiting, training, and supporting caring volunteers who advocate for their needs and rights. We strive to ensure that each child's unique circumstances and experiences are heard and understood, empowering them to thrive in a loving and stable environment. Through our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion, we aim to create a compassionate and just child welfare system that respects and values the diverse backgrounds and identities of the children and families we serve. Together, we can make a positive and lasting impact on the lives of these vulnerable children.
Our vision is a community where every child has a safe and permanent home, where their best interests are protected, and their voices are heard. We strive to create a society where CASA volunteers empower and advocate for abused and neglected children, ensuring they receive the support, love, and opportunities they deserve, ultimately breaking the cycle of abuse and fostering a brighter future for every child.
