Are you looking for a volunteer opportunity that will help children who have been neglected or abused? Would you like to help work with a team to help find a safe and loving home where they can thrive? CASA is that opportunity.

Court-appointed special advocate (CASA) volunteers make a life-changing difference for children who have experienced abuse or neglect.

Each volunteer is appointed by a judge to advocate for a child’s best interest in court. Volunteers help judges develop a fuller picture of each child’s life. Their advocacy enables judges to make the most well-informed decision for each child.

The next CASA training class for Smith, Overton, Cumberland, and Putnam counties in Tennessee begins Friday, August 14, 2020. 

Find out more about the requirements and role of being a CASA volunteer by contacting Smith County CASA Coordinator, Bernie Morris, at 423-736-5545 or at
