Get to Know Carla

Carla Hendricks joined CASA Nashville in January 2021, bringing with her nearly two decades of advocacy for vulnerable children and families. After becoming an adoptive parent, she discovered a passion to support and advocate for children whose lives have been touched by trauma, foster care, and/or adoption. Having earned a bachelor’s in Communications from Howard University, this passion led her to pursue training in trauma-informed care by completing Trust-Based Relational Intervention® Practitioner Training in 2018. Her journey with CASA began when she was commissioned as a volunteer advocate for Williamson County CASA in 2016. She is thrilled that this journey has led her to CASA Nashville as a Volunteer Advocate Team Leader and hopes to serve CASA Nashville for many years to come.
