MISSION:
Georgia Court Appointed Special Advocates develops and supports court-sanctioned, community-based affiliate programs that provide trained and supervised volunteers to advocate for the best interests of abused or neglected children involved in juvenile court dependency proceedings. Our vision is for each child to have a safe and permanent home.

 

“It is with the expertise and financial support of TechBridge that we are confident we can turn our dream into a reality to provide more robust, predictive, and correlative data management tools for our statewide CASA network of more than 3,000 child advocates. The new skills gained will have a direct impact on the quality of advocacy for more than 11,500 children experiencing foster care in Georgia. Thank you TechBridge for your encouragement and investment.”

– JENNIFER KING, Executive Director

 

Georgia CASA has more than two decades of child, volunteer, and operational data from its 46 CASA affiliates. Georgia CASA’s internal capacity to convert this data into meaningful reporting has only scratched the surface with current technology and expertise. In order to provide Georgia CASA network with useful, relevant, and timely data reporting, their team is currently positioned to dedicate staff time and resources towards more robust, predictive, and correlative data management tools.

Georgia CASA has lead roles in supporting and advancing the collective work of the CASA network in Georgia. Quality assurance, continuous improvement, and management support are key roles for the state office. Georgia CASA has led the way in terms of network engagement, affiliation, and support services. By investing resources to make data reporting more accessible, CASA leadership (state and affiliate staff and board members) will have the ability to make more informed decisions specific to resource allocation, service improvements, and operational effectiveness. 

The ability to more efficiently and effectively convert and apply data will help Georgia CASA learn and adapt to current trends, overcome barriers, and invest in practices that produce and support high quality child advocacy. For the internal team, the time invested in understanding the different ways to use and apply the various tools, creating templates and tools to generate multi-level, customized reports for individual affiliates, as well as others, will minimize current efforts to create/recreate individualized reports for each specific request. Lastly, the ease and accessibility to convert data for their funders, supporters, and the general public will provide additional opportunities to engage and increase support for our overall efforts.
