Brightside Child & Family Advocacy
Since 1991, Brightside Child & Family Advocacy has recruited, trained, and appointed volunteers to advocate for children who have experienced abuse or neglect. Their best-interest advocacy helps ensure that children are safe, have a permanent home, and have the opportunity to thrive.
Brightside Child & Family Advocacy volunteers are appointed by Chatham County Juvenile Court judges to advocate for children’s best interests. They stay with each case until it is closed and the child is in a safe, permanent home. Brightside Child & Family Advocacy serves children from birth through 21 years old.
Club Car Championship at The Landings Golf & Athletic Club continues to work with Brightside Child & Family Advocacy, who collects the proceeds from the tournament’s public parking lot.
