But there are more children in need than we have the volunteer or financial capacity to handle. We need more resources, but your help can make an important difference. The number of children in the juvenile court system continues to increase and CASA needs your help.  We need people in the community to become advocates for these children.

Sumner County CASA

Mission Statement:

Changing the lives of abused and neglected children since 1991.

About 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. They are appointed by the judge to meet regularly with the child, review records, and talk to family members and professionals involved in the child's case. They report information to the judge, voice their concerns to promote the child's best interests, and monitor compliance with the court's orders until the child has been placed in a safe, permanent home.
