CASA trains everyday citizens
from all walks of life to become these abused and neglected children's voice in the courtroom. No experience required!
The volunteer is able to provide the Judge with first hand knowledge of the circumstances surrounding the child. Volunteers
visit with parents, foster parents, teachers, social workers, therapist, anyone with knowledge regarding the child's situation,
including the child. The information found through out the volunteer's investigation is then reported back to the
judge in written form. This report also includes the CASA volunteer's concerns regarding the child.
Sumner County CASA, Inc. is a nonprofit organization created
to train and supervise diverse volunteers who act as advocates for the best interest of children involved in court proceedings
primarily as a result of abuse and/or neglect.
