Mission Statement

The mission of CASA is to speak for the best interests of abused and neglected children in the courts. We promote and support quality volunteer representation for children to provide each child a safe, permanent, nurturing home.

Description

Every year more than half a million abused and neglected children are in need of safe, permanent, nurturing homes. That's where CASA steps in. CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) was created in 1977 to make sure the abuse and neglect these children originally suffered at home doesn't continue as abuse and neglect at the hands of the system. As trained advocates, CASA volunteers are appointed by judges to be a voice for these children in court. The result is that a child is placed into a safe, loving home where he/she can thrive. It is the CASA vision to provide a volunteer for each and every abused and neglected child who needs one.

Marion, Michelle and Jody at CASA Monroe have built a greatly respected CASA [Court Appointed Special Advocate] for the children in Monroe county Tennessee. The Festival of Tree they put on each November has been very successful, and who doen't love Christmas Trees? Donate, volunteer or become an advocate for the children in one of the poorest counties in Tennessee.
