CHILD ENRICHMENT INC Overview
Programs: The Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) program trains and supports community volunteers to advocate for abused and neglected children in juvenile court proceedings. Too often, children who have been removed from their homes as a result of abuse and neglect suffer further trauma due to an overwhelmed child welfare system. Far too many children have fallen through the cracks because there was no voice to speak on their behalf in court, and there was nobody to ensure that their needs were being met. Our firm commitment to advocate for these children guides us in our effort to expand and become more efficient so that every child needing a CASA is able to receive one. Recently, we were able to add another CASA Volunteer Coordinator, bringing the total to four. These skilled child advocates supervise 122 CASA Volunteers in the area. NEXT: The Child Advocacy Center:The Child Advocacy Center of Child Enrichment enhances the system's response to suspected child abuse cases by combining the professional knowledge of a multi-disciplinary team. The center keeps the focus on the child and works to ensure that the systems designed to protect children are able to do so effectively. The center provides Forensic Interviews of children and individual and group counseling. The center works closely with law enforcement, Dept. of Family and Children Services and the DA's office.The Volunteer Program seeks to provide all of the Child Enrichment, Inc., programs with trained community volunteers. Positions are divided into direct contact with children, program support positions, and special events. Many volunteers are able to model appropriate adult/child relationships and make a truly positive impact on the children.We are the only organization in the State of Georgia to provide such an all-encompassing arrangement of services for child victims of abuse. Without our organization there would be no emergency placement for children in a twenty-one county area. Abused children would be subjected to a harsh legal and foster care system with no one looking out for their best interests. Without our services, counseling would scarcely be available for those who cannot afford treatment. All of the programs of Child Enrichment work together to provide abused, abandoned, and neglected children with a variety of necessary services that can help them begin the healing process and ensure that their needs are met.
