Child Advocacy Days
What have CASA staff been up to?
Our Executive Director Kesha and Anderson County Coordinator Michelle
took a trip to Nashville on May 7th and 8th to be apart of Children’s Advocacy Days! This event was offered by the
Tennessee Commission of Children a Youth one of our Community agencies we love to be apart of.
They both enjoyed the connections made and information learned!
“Much like an orchestra with its blend of instruments and sounds, every community strives to be in harmony,
all its instruments in tune, each playing its part in the symphony. In a community, policies and systems must work together to achieve
harmony to enrich the lives of all children, youth and families. Organizations that work collaboratively bring disparate melodies together to create
a symphony far greater than its individual parts. As an orchestra, each community creates its own powerful, joyous sound.”

“Please help me raise money for CASA of the TN Heartland. A cause near to my heart. I volunteered as a Court Appointed Special Advocate for several years and saw for myself traumatic abuse and neglect situations too many children face everyday. CASAs can make significant differences in their lives by being a voice for the voiceless!”
