CASA of the Tennessee Valley trains and supports citizen volunteers who are appointed by the juvenile courts to advocate for the best interests of abused and neglected children in Roane, Loudon, Morgan, Cumberland, Putnam, and Overton counties. These citizen volunteers – Court Appointed Special Advocates – are a voice for the child in court and advocates for court decisions that will bring safety and stability to the young lives in turmoil.
CASA of the Tennessee Valley is a non-profit agency [501(c)(3)] serving children in Tennessee’s Loudon, Morgan, Roane, Cumberland, Putnam, and Overton counties. We are affiliated with, and adhere to the standards of, the National CASA Association and the Tennessee CASA Association, but are locally governed and responsible for obtaining our own funding.
Our mission is to provide a powerful voice for abused and neglected children by advocating for each child, within the court's jurisdiction, by recruiting, training, and supervising volunteers in order to ensure safety, permanency and an opportunity to thrive.
Our Vision: Seeing Every Child in a Safe, Permanent Home
CASA Volunteers help change children's lives every day.

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.
