What is CASA

Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASAs) are volunteers trained to be advocates for children who have been abused and neglected and are under the protection of the court.

  • CASAs are judge appointed
  • CASAs meet with children and families
  • CASAs promote children’s best interest
  • CASAs monitor court compliance

Why Volunteer?

The foster care and juvenile court system is filled with talented, committed, and passionate professionals. It is also a system that is overwhelmed and overburdened.

  • Judges average a caseload of around 1,000 children
  • Social workers must manage 30-40 families at a time
  • Sumner County children average 9 months in foster care
  • CASAs can reduce time in the system by 15 months
