CASA For Kids, Inc.'s mission is to advocate for the best interest of the neglected / abused children appointed to us through the Juvenile Courts in Sullivan and Hawkins Counties. We will accomplish this by recruiting, training, and supervising dedicated community volunteers. These volunteers will be able to research and to relay accurate information to the court and monitor the child's situation. This will help the court to facilitate placement of these children in safe, healthy, permanent homes in an expedient manner.

CASA Highlighted in Local United Way Campaign
The United Way of Bristol TN & VA and the Bristol Herald Courier teamed up to highlight several United Way agencies in a series of stories about residents who have been helped and the volunteers who help them through the 27 agencies supported by United Way of Bristol. CASA for Kids Inc., was selected to showcase their efforts in fighting child abuse and neglect in our community through this series.
Pam Kuykendall, a CASA volunteer in Bristol, TN, was selected to speak about her experiences as a CASA volunteer for the BHC and her story was shared on October 28, 2013. Kuykendall gave her personal reason for joining the CASA organization and how her advocacy impacted the lives of each CASA child.
“I am very proud of each CASA Volunteer within this organization,” Mary Kilpatrick, Executive Director of CASA for Kids Inc., stated. “Without the continued support of our local United Ways, our CASA volunteers would not be able to do the incredible work for each child appointed to the program. We cannot thank our local United Ways enough for all their support and encouragement.”
CASA for Kids, Inc. is proud to be a United Way agency for the United Way of Greater Kingsport, United Way of Hawkins County, and the United Way of Bristol TN & VA. The United Way programs in the region are currently conducting their annual fundraising campaign.
