Welcome to CASA Corridor of East Tennessee
The core purpose of CASA Corridor of East Tennessee is to provide a voice for abused and neglected children in our community. As a non-profit, volunteer-based agency, our mission is to empower CASA volunteers to advocate on behalf of abused and neglected children in juvenile court. Our vision is to provide a court-appointed volunteer advocate for every child who needs one.
CASA Corridor of East Tennessee was founded in 2007 and since that time has served countless numbers of innocent children who, through no fault of their own, have been brought into the court system. CASA Corridor of East Tennessee has given these children a voice.
Each year, hundreds of children are removed from their homes because of abuse and neglect in McMinn, Meigs, Rhea Counties. Currently, CASA Corridor of East Tennessee is able to give a voice of hope to half of these children. For the latest child welfare statistics in Tennessee click here
It has been proven that children with a CASA volunteer do not get “forgotten” in the foster care system, they receive necessary services as well as more positive outcomes and are less likely to return to the court system.
Consider adding your voice to ours and speaking up for these hurting children. Be a voice of hope. Be a CASA
