  7. Children's Voice: CASA - Court-Appointed Special Advocates


    In Georgia, approximately 13,000 children at any one time are entangled in the juvenile justice and foster care systems because they are victims of abuse, neglect or abandonment. A large majority of the children are taken from their homes and placed in a massive state system where they can get "lost" for months and even years. CASA volunteers serve as the eyes and ears of the court. They gather information from anyone who may be able to shed light on the child's situation. The CASA volunteer attends court proceedings and makes an independent recommendation to the judge about what is in the child's best interests - bringing a sense of urgency to the child's needs. As a community partner in the child welfare system, a CASA volunteer increases a deprived child's access to services, promotes safety, and advocates for timeliness and permanency for children involved in juvenile court proceedings. The CASA volunteer remains involved until the case is permanently resolved to keep the focus on the child.

It is our mission is to share and promote genealogy for the enjoyment and recreation of the members, and, as a public service, provide for the collection and preservation of public records which may be of genealogical interest to others.

    Rhett Williamson had dreamed for years of having a society of individuals who wanted to learn about their families. He placed ads in the local newspapers and talked of this wherever he went. Eventually, in January of 1998, 16 people gathered at the Douglas County Library to learn more and agreed to form such a group. A steering committee was formed and they came up with a name and proposed constitution.

    On March 5, 1998 the first meeting was held and the constitution adopted. With the election of Irene Jackson as President, Sandra Whittington as Vice President, and Rebecca Collins as Secretary/Treasurer, the society was off and running. Thirty one people (our charter members) were present for this meeting, the official birth of the Douglas County Genealogical Society.

    Now in our second decade, we are still excited about finding and proving our family trees. Over half of the charter members are still active and willingly assist any new members who need help researching their family lines.

    Many of the members are on the the Douglas County Cemetery Commission and have given freely of their time to transcribing the names from these markers in an attempt to make ancestral research easier and available online.

The Director and staff of the tournament have a passion for basketball and outdoor activities for youth. We have teamed up with the Douglas County Boys & Girls Club to promote physical fitness activities for youth.
