UCHRA Court Appointed Special Advocates
"Our mission is to speak in the best interests of abused and neglected children, CASA advocates help to assure each child a safe, permanent, and nurturing home."
Over 250 children in Cumberland, Overton, and Putnam County are in need of a Court Appointed Special Advocate. Last year alone more than 2500 children were reported abuse and neglect. There has been an increase due to the manufacturing of Meth and the economy. If you would like to become a Court Appointed Special Advocate please contact our office at 931-520-8733
CASA Program Goals
To appoint a trained community volunteer advocate for each child brought to Juvenile Court because of allegations involving
abuse or neglect.
To train, support, supervise, and equip each volunteer advocate with the skills and resources needed to work towards a safe, permanent home for each child.
To enhance judicial decision making by providing thorough and accurate information in the case of each child. The CASA
volunteer will make recommendations to the court for the "best interest" of the child.
To train volunteer advocates by requiring the volunteer to visit the child at least twice each month, to ensure the child remains
in a safe environment.
To make a difference in the lives of abused and neglected children.
