NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – The Tennessee CASA Association held its annual celebration for those who help over 5,000 children across the state every year.
The event for CASA, which stands for court appointed special advocates, was held Tuesday morning at the downtown Nashville library.
“We have 30 programs serving 52 counties in Tennessee that recruit, train and supervise volunteers to advocate for abused children in Tennessee,” explained Lynne Farrar.
“The Tennessee CASA Association is an organization that gives support to all those local programs,” she added. “We support, expand, and unite the network to do the best job possible for children.”
The association still needs more help. They estimate there are actually 20,000 children across Tennessee who need advocacy.
