CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) Corridor of East Tennessee is a nonprofit organization located in Athens, Tennessee.  CASA Corridor staff and volunteers have been working to preserve the rights of abused/neglected children in McMinn, Meigs, and Rhea Counties since 2007.  CASA Corridor is supported by the United Way of McMinn/Meigs Counties, Tennessee Commission on Children and Youth, National CASA Association, Athens Federal Foundation, Variety of East Tennessee, and The George R. Johnson Family Foundation.


The terrible stories we hear in the news about little children should make all of us stop and think, “What could I have done to have helped prevent this tragedy?”
For people who want to make a big difference in the life of vulnerable kids but lack the time and intense commitment to become foster parents – a noble calling that everyone should consider – there’s the option of becoming a court-appointed special advocate.

CASA volunteers stand by children through court-proceedings to protect their rights and ensure that they have safe, permanent homes. CASA Corridor serves abused/neglected children who are before the juvenile courts of McMinn, Meigs and Rhea Counties through no fault of their own. If you would like to make a positive difference in a child’s life by advocating for their best interest you should call us today.

CASA Corridor will start new advocate training on May 15, 2017. The classes will begin at 5:30 pm and end at 7:30pm, one or possible two nights a week. The length of the training session is 6 weeks. The classes are open to citizens of McMinn, Meigs, and Rhea Counties. These classes will be held in Decatur at our satellite office.
