Volunteer with CASA

 

The Tennessee Department of Children’s Services (DCS), due to overwhelming caseloads and responsibilities, finds it difficult, at times, to give a child’s case an individualized and in-depth investigation. The CASA volunteer’s involvement becomes essential in expediting the child’s case through the judicial system. Children often lack continuity in DCS case managers, experience delays in foster placements, and their individual best interests become buried in the mechanisms of an overburdened system—all impeding their placement in a permanent, stable, loving home. Often times, the CASA volunteer is the only constant in the lives of these children. The CASA volunteer can make a tremendous difference in the life of a child. The CASA program provides the opportunity for caring adults to become actively involved in meeting the needs of the abused, neglected, and abandoned children in Wilson County.

If you are interested in joining the the group of elite volunteers in either county and want to make a difference, please contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots.
