Faculty Supervisor: Dr. Kimberly Kinsey Mannahan

Abstract:

Our collaboration with CASA Glynn is a partnership that spans two semesters. We first started working with this organization in fall 2013 as part of Dr. Mannahan’s Introduction to Human Services course. We found the work so compelling that we continued through the spring semester as part of our Senior Capstone Practicum course while adding a few new team members along the way. Casa Glynn advocates and serves as a voice for the more than 150 children in the foster care system in our community. We aimed to accomplish three goals in our partnership with CASA Glynn. First, we sought to raise awareness in the community of the importance of CASA and the organization’s goals. Second, we also worked to recruit community volunteers to become court appointed special advocates.  Third, we worked to raise money for the organization to help them serve the children in our community.
