CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates)
The Tennessee Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) Association is a statewide organization that provides support to 25 local CASA programs serving 42 counties across Tennessee. Local programs provide trained volunteers (called CASA's) to advocate for abused and neglected children who come to the attention of the Tennessee juvenile courts. Essentially, CASA volunteers are the “light of hope” for the children who tend to fall through the cracks of an overburdened legal system. However, we want to focus to be on the positive aspect of what a difference one caring adult (CASA volunteer) can make in a child’s life. A CASA volunteer can be ANYONE (with required training). For more information on what CASA does please visit our web site and National CASA’s web site: http://www.tncasa.org and http://www.casaforchildren.org. We also recommend checking-out National CASA’s videos on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/casaforchildren.
The TN CASA Association will be holding our first annual statewide public awareness fun run. “Light of Hope” is our theme. CASA programs across the state of TN will hold fun runs through the months of April and May 2011. The fun run’s purpose is to create an awareness of who CASA is and what we do for children across the state of TN (as well as nationally). Children are always our main focus.
