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 Tennessee Valley serves juvenile courts in Loudon, Morgan, and Roane Counties. In the year ending June 30th, 30 CASA volunteers have served 98 children in those three counties in 2020. Yet, some children referred by the court went without a CASA because of the shortage of volunteers.
CASA is a nationwide concept that is implemented locally. Members of the community give some of their time and energy to advocate for local children caught in abusive and neglectful situations. These advocates are trained and supported by CASA, an organization that is locally governed and funded by locally-generated funds.
You can help our communities move toward the goal of “seeing that every child in the juvenile court system has an advocate on their side.”
CASA of the Tennessee Valley is a locally chartered and governed not-for-profit agency, serving abused and neglected children in the juvenile courts of Loudon, Morgan, and Roane counties, all a part of the Tennessee Valley. We are a member of the National CASA Association and the Tennessee CASA Association, adhering to national and state program training standards. We are a stand-alone organization responsible for its own funding and management, governed by a volunteer board with leaders from each of the three counties.

Our Vision: Seeing Every Child in a Safe, Permanent Home
CASA Volunteers help change children's lives every day.
Abused and neglected children had a CASA volunteer speaking up for their best interest in the last year.
Children are waiting for a volunteer empowered to find them a safe, loving, permanent home.
Children in safer homes since 1977.
I would have been lost in foster care without my CASA volunteer.
