CASA, Inc.'s mission is to provide trained community volunteers to advocate for the best interests of children who come to the attention of juvenile court primarily as a result of abuse or neglect.  CASA, Inc. received approval for 501(c)3 status on September 26, 1984. Since that time, the Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) program has served Nashville by helping abused and neglected children find safe and permanent homes. It is the CASA volunteer's duty to build an in-depth knowledge of each assigned case, focus on the child's best interests and express those needs and point of view within the court. Advocates' recommendations help judges make more informed decisions and give children a voice during an uncertain and often frightening time. CASA's goals for the year include meeting their operational budget, growing the volunteer pool by 10%, and serving 25% more children than they served in calendar year 2010.
