In the past year, Lakeway CASA of Hamblen, Jefferson and Sevier Counties has served over 100 children. Our volunteers advocate for one to two family groups at a time to ensure quality advocacy. We are made up of thirty-one committed child advocate volunteers, nine board members, and a staff of one full-time executive director and one full-time volunteer services director, and one part-time volunteer coordinator. Lakeway CASA conducts investigations and interviews that the courts do not have the resources to conduct, serves as a trusted friend to the child, and expedites the child’s placement in a safe and loving home. Without CASA, court proceedings are often postponed needlessly because investigations are not complete and important details that are critical to the child’s healing and well-being can be overlooked.
Lakeway CASA is a non-profit agency. Lakeway CASA gained their 501c3 in January 2014. Lakeway CASA serves children ages birth to 18 years old in Hamblen, Jefferson, and Sevier Counties.
