Who We Are

The Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) of Rutherford County is a volunteer-powered network of committed people—from all walks of life—who believe society has a fundamental obligation to abused and neglected children. Our mission is to ensure that each of our children has the right to grow up in a safe, permanent, and loving home.

CASA volunteers advocate for abused or neglected children, to make sure they don’t get lost in the overburdened legal and social service system. Volunteers typically handle one case at a time, stay with each case until it is closed, or until the child is placed in a safe, permanent home. For many of the children we serve, their CASA volunteer will be the one constant adult presence in their lives.
