Brightside Community Outreach VISTA 22-23
 
 
 
After 30 years of providing advocacy to thousands of children in foster care, Savannah CASA is evolving to serve more families and children in crisis. Under the new name Brightside Child & Family Advocacy, this organization will provide a wide range of services aiming to prevent child abuse and neglect in Chatham County. ¿ As the 2021 recipient of the Georgia CASA Award of Excellence, Brightside Child & Family Advocacy will continue its high quality and personalized advocacy for children in foster care. With nearly 200 trained volunteers, Brightside’s Savannah CASA program will ensure that children in our community who have experienced abuse and neglect have a committed advocate helping to change their story. In 2022, Brightside will launch The Bright House, a supervised visitation and family support center. In a warm homelike environment, parents will develop healthy relationships with their children while participating in their court-mandated supervised visitation. By providing parental coaching, referrals to community services and case management, The Bright House will be a positive space for families to heal and grow despite the many barriers that arise from difficult circumstances. ¿
