  • Mission:
  • Central Georgia CASA, Inc. (CGCASA) is a private, non-profit 501(c) (3) organization with a mission to foster the safety, stability, and security of neglected and abused child victims by representing their best interests in the Macon Judicial Circuit’s juvenile court deprivation proceedings. CGCASA was founded by the Family Counseling Center of Central Georgia in 1997. At that time, the Bibb County Department of Family and Children Services (DFCS) had over 650 open cases of abuse and/or neglect with approximately twenty new cases of reported child abuse/neglect per week to investigate. In order to address the rising statistics and meet the needs of the abused and neglected children of central Georgia, Bibb County DFCS director Marjorie Almond and Judge Thomas Matthews actively recruited for the program. In 1999, CGCASA expanded its services to include Peach and Crawford Counties. Both Judge Matthews and Mrs. Almand recognized the role that volunteers could play by offering child victims the time and dedication needed to mend the frayed safety net while advocating for safety and permanency in their young lives

  • History:
  • CGCASA served 261 of the 340 children in care during the 2008 fiscal year; this is 77% of the children in the custody in Bibb, Peach, and Crawford Counties. It is CGCASA’s goal to serve 100% of the children in care. Future funding would be applied toward serving all of the abused and neglected children in care, allowing CGCASA to increase the number of children and families served to 340 by June 30, 2009. In order to accomplish our mission of advocating for and protecting children, we must have the resources to expand this valuable service. Without the funding necessary for program expansion, 23% of the abused and/or neglected children in Bibb, Peach, and Crawford counties will not have someone advocating for their best interest in court and ensuring their voices are heard.
