CASA of Dickson County is proud to be joining the Dickson Chamber of Commerce. The non-profit's interest in joining the industry group was spurred by its board members who are also active in the Chamber such as Dustin Greene of TriStar Horizon Medical Center, Debbie Street of Hiscall, Inc., Rep. Mary Littleton (R-Dickson) and Meagan Frazier Grosvenor of Smith Harris & Carr.
"Dickson is our home and we want to support the work of the Chamber.  We also want people in Dickson to know we are getting established and plan to do important work on behalf of abused and neglected children in our community," said Rachel Spencer, CASA of Dickson County Executive Director.
CASA of Dickson County provides trained community volunteers to advocate for the best interests of children who come to the attention of the Juvenile Court primarily as a result of abuse or neglect. For more information visit www.casadicksoncounty.org or call 615-509-5501.
