35 years of Service

Our mission is to advocate for hope, healing, and permanency for abused and neglected children in juvenile court by providing trained volunteer advocates in the Nashville community. 

Since 1984, the Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) program has served Nashville by speaking for abused and neglected children caught in the court system and helping them find safe and permanent homes. Too many children, who through no fault of their own, face a crucial turning point in their lives without a voice. CASA’s trained volunteer advocates speak exclusively for each child and give them hope.

When CASA is involved, the results are remarkable. Children are more likely to:

  • Stay out of the welfare system
  • Be successful academically in school
  • Remain in a stable and caring home

Every child deserves a chance. Every child deserves a safe home. Get involved with CASA today, so you can proudly “Change a child’s story.”


Of your donations go directly to CASA’s mission of advocating for abused and neglected children.


Children come to the attention of Davidson County’s courts each year due to abuse, neglect or abandonment.
