About Us

Better Courts for Kids is an advocacy group composed of former Georgia Juvenile Court volunteers. Our group includes a realtor, a banker, a published author, two attorneys, a non-profit CEO, and an epidemiologist. Some of our members are adoptive parents. We are united by our belief that we can and must do better by our children in foster care.



Gov Purdue Signing SB207
Our experiences advocating for children inside the courtroom and working externally to improve the foster care system led us to pursue legislation to open to the public juvenile court hearings in Georgia for abused and neglected children. SB 207 was passed with the overwhelming support of the Georgia Legislature in 2009 and went into effect across Georgia in 2010. Better Courts for Kids is committed to educating interested parties and the public at large about this important change in the law.
