CASA Social Media

One way to “advocate” for our community’s abused and neglected children is to help spread CASA’s mission.

Macon County CASA invites you to stay connected with events, donor thank yous, volunteer opportunities, recommendations for positive parent-child interactions, and more through our social media outlets. Like, share, and comment on our posts to help Macon County and surrounding communities understand why 630 local foster children need a voice.
