Abused and neglected children have not only been victimized by trusted relatives, but they have been further damaged by the impersonal system developed to protect them. Separated from their families, many children languish in the limbo state of foster care for years without any plan for a permanent home. And the impact is tremendously troublesome:
CASA Nashville, however, does not step back from the challenges facing too many children in our community. We stand up and speak for victims, who through no fault of their own, are caught in system. Every day, CASA works to reduce the amount of time children spend in foster care and to facilitate rapid placement in safe, permanent homes. Our volunteers put in an estimated 27,000 hours of service to enact upon CASA’s mission.
Does it work?
Please take some time to watch the videos on this page and throughout the site that tell CASA’s Stories. We are proud of our volunteers work and their impact on breaking the cycle of abuse and neglect in our community.
