    "Champions for Children" are people who have signed up to make a monthly credit card donation to support Southeast CASA's advocacy for abused and neglected children. For the price of one meal out per month, you can enroll in the Champions for Children program and make a significant annual donation to CASA.
    It's safe, easy, and affordable to provide a CASA advocate for a child. You select the monthly amount you want to donate, provide your credit card information, and our secure payment processing system does the rest!

    • $5 a month provides a CASA manual for a CASA volunteer
    • $10 a month provides CASA reports to the Court during the child's case.
    • $20 a month provides CASA attendance at all court hearings for the child's case.
    • $40 a month provides training for one new CASA volunteer.
