HISTORY OF CARROLL CASA

Carroll County CASA was established as a non-profit 501(c)(3) in 1998, to advocate for abused and neglected children. The mission of Carroll County CASA is to recruit, screen, train, and supervise volunteers to work with children involved in Juvenile Court dependency proceedings in Carroll County. The goal is to ensure each child finds safety and permanency as quickly and appropriately as possible.

 

Founders, Russ and Mary Sarner organized and implemented the CASA program in Carroll County after serving as CASA volunteers in Haralson County, Georgia, and after serving for many years as Citizen Panel Review members.

 

Our program is now housed at 110 Dixie Street, Suite 100 in Carrollton. This location has allowed us to expand our staff, conduct initial and ongoing volunteer training and to present a professional appearance to the community. 

 

Carroll County CASA, Inc. is funded by the generosity of community members, civic clubs, Carroll County government, churches, local foundations and the funds from the state legislature under the Department of Human Resources.
