Do you have 6-12 hours a month to help a child in need?  That's all it takes to help break the cycle of abuse.  Read more below.

Help Us Serve Every Child

 

CASA of the Ninth Judicial District serves juvenile courts in Loudon, Morgan, and Roane Counties. In the year ending June 30, 41 CASA volunteers served 147 children in those three counties. Yet, some children referred by the court went without a CASA because of the shortage of volunteers.

 CASA is a nationwide concept, implemented locally. Members of the community give of their time and energy to advocate for local children caught in a web of abuse and neglect and the aftermath. These Court Appointed Special Advocates are, in turn, trained and supported by a professional organization that is locally governed and funded in large part by locally-generated funds.

You can help move our communities move toward the goal of “seeing that every child in the juvenile court system has an advocate on their side.”
