Wilson County CASA

Wilson County Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) provides trained volunteers who advocate in court for the stability and healthy development of abused and neglected children.

Cases are referred to the CASA programs by the Juvenile Court Judge, the Department of Children’s Services, and/or the Foster Care Review Board. Wilson County CASA accepts cases of physical abuse, sexual abuse, neglect, drug exposure, and other cases as the court deems necessary.

Advocating for children who are victims of abuse or neglect can be frustrating and sometimes painful, but our volunteer advocates know that no matter how tough the case, there is always a light at the end of the tunnel. CASA volunteers do not leave the case until the child can be returned home, is adopted, or other permanent arrangements are made for the child.

If you suspect a child is being abused Tennessee state law requires that you report it. Reporting suspected child abuse is your duty and failure to report is a crime. Referrals may be made anonymously at 1-877-237-0004 or click here.
