Lainie Jenkins – Director
Welcome to CASA Program for the Ogeechee Judicial Circuit! We are glad you are visiting our site and hope you will come back often. I am Lainie Jenkins, our program’s Executive Director and I am excited about the changes we have been making. It’s no secret that the economy is creating great hardships on people all over the country, and our area is no different. The stress of unemployment and high gas prices, unfortunately, contribute to the greater likelihood of abuse and neglect.
We are committed to recruiting, screening and training the best advocates possible for our community’s children. Training entails 30 hours of classroom participation, 10 hours of courtroom observation and at least 12 hours of continuing education each year. Volunteer Advocates must be 21 years old, willing to make regular visits to a child’s home or foster home, and have ongoing contact with the adults who are a part of the child’s life. Sound like a big responsibility? It is! And the children in the Ogeechee Judicial Circuit deserve nothing less. Help us make the difference. Donate, Volunteer, Advocate. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 912-764-4849 . Thank you!
We just enjoyed our first Women Working Wonders event to say thank you to Wonderful Women who support CASA with an annual gift. A beautiful breakfast was held at Woodlawn Plantation with our very own intern, Shukia Jones, as our speaker. Women Working Wonders women believe the well-being of abused and neglected children is vitally important to our future; we appreciate their support!
