Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) and H.A.B.I.T.

Blount County Juvenile Court relies on CASAs to advocate for children in Foster Care.  CASAs are volunteers who receive extensive training and who conduct investigations and provide reports to the Court before Court hearings.  CASAs are sworn to protect the best interest of the children whose cases they handle.  If you are interested in becoming a CASA, please contact CASA of the Tennessee Heartland or e-mail or call 865-273-5993

The Court, CASA, and Human-Animal Bond in Tennessee (H.A.B.I.T.) provide therapy dogs to comfort children in foster care when they have to appear in Court and before the Foster Care Review Board.  To learn more about becoming a H.A.B.I.T. volunteer, visit their website
