Consider the story of just one family… The Dillers.
The Diller boys had only known abuse and neglect at the hands of their drug-addicted mother. Their fathers were in jail, and they were living separately, moving constantly from temporary home to temporary home. Languishing within the child welfare system, the future for the Diller boys was bleak. Luckily, CASA Nashville was assigned to help with their case, and through the dedication and persistence of a CASA advocate, the boys were reunited and eventually adopted by Michele and Vince Diller. Today, the boys are thriving and live in a safe, loving home.
CASA advocates ensure that each child is given the rights and opportunities he or she deserves. By serving as a dedicated set of eyes and ears to a family court judge who must decide the permanent placement for each child, volunteers become the one ‘constant’ in a child’s life during this unstable, often scary time. We hope you will consider giving to CASA Nashville – and here are just a few reasons to do just that.
- Our children: Children of all ages, races and socio-economic backgrounds. Children with irresistible grins, vivid imaginations and incredible potential. All of them sharing one unfortunate trait – each one has been a victim of life-threatening abuse or neglect.
- Our volunteers: Just like everyone else, they work, make dinner, drive the carpool, walk the dog, hit the gym, coach soccer, take vacations and watch TV. What sets them apart? They still find time to “speak for the child.”
- Our reputation: Since our founding in 1984, CASA Nashville has led the ongoing fight against child abuse. We have built a solid reputation as a diligent steward of your funds, managing a cost-effective, volunteer advocacy model to serve children.
We realize how many incredible organizations and noble causes there are out there. And, we understand you have a choice when it comes to which ones you support. We hope to see you support CASA Nashville today. Through your generosity, CASA can recruit and train more volunteer advocates and help more children. Literally, every dollar progresses CASA closer and closer to the vision of giving every child the voice they need and deserve. Click here to learn the Ways You Can Give.
