In 1988, Georgia CASA began as a demonstration project of Kids of Georgia Need Volunteers, Inc. In 1989, two pilot CASA programs in Georgia were formed. In 1992, Georgia CASA gained independent, nonprofit status and began transitioning local CASA programs into independence.
In 1996, Mrs. Miriam Bryant, who worked with a CASA program in Maryland before moving to Bulloch County in 1995, approached Superior Court Chief Judge William Woodrum Jr. about whether a CASA program would help to serve the children in the Ogeechee Judicial Circuit. Judge Woodrum agreed..
CASA Ogeechee excitedly opened its doors as an independent, non-profit organization according to IRS Code Section 501 (c) (3), in February of 2002.
