CASA is an organization that provides highly-trained citizen volunteers to advocate for abused and neglected children. The acronym stand for Court Appointed Special Advocates. We are appointed by a court, which gives our advocates authority to investigate on behalf of the judge. Our advocates have a special passion for children whose lives are before a court nor for what they have done, but for what has been done to them.
CASA of the Ninth Judicial District (Tennessee) is one of almost 1,000 local CASA programs affiliated with the National CASA Association, and our volunteers are among the thousands who have helped more than 2-million children find safe, permanent homes. We are a Tennessee chartered 501(c)(3) not-for-profit agency formed for the purpose of providing CASA volunteers for the juvenile courts of Loudon, Morgan and Roane counties.
