1 Youth Philanthropy in the Middle Tennessee Community

2 This document is dedicated to starting conversations between donors and organizations that impact youth in the Middle Tennessee community.

3 Letter from the President Every organization profiled in this Prospectus was chosen for its excellence, impact, and vision to better the lives of disadvantaged youth in Middle Tennessee. We would like to thank all the non-profit professionals who gave their time to sit down and talk with us about their missions, visions, and the impact their organization has had. Every day they help improve the lives of thousands of kids. This Prospectus started as an internal document to highlight organizations engaged in youth philanthropy across our region. We wanted to understand the success of various models and understand each organization s mission and vision. In so doing, we gained insight into the types of programming they administer and the options for impact that are available in the community. While this collection of organizations is aligned with our mission of improving the lives of disadvantaged youth, we wanted to package this as an overview, a menu of giving, that can help other donors and philanthropists better understand the breadth, impact, and mission of organizations in our community. We especially appreciate our longstanding partner the Boys & Girls Clubs of Middle Tennessee. The Phoenix Club of Nashville takes an active role in the organizations it supports--and none more so than the Boys & Girls Clubs whose mission we have supported since our founding and whose work has made a measurable difference in the community. If you are interested in any of the organizations profiled in this book, please contact them directly. Our hope is that this Prospectus helps raise awareness of the amazing work that is going on in the city to support kids and start conversations that result in greater impact in the sector of youth philanthropy. If you want more information about ways to support the Phoenix Club of Nashville as a sponsor of our events, to work with us on our holiday card campaign, or if you want to match our giving, please reach me through our website There are thousands of youth whose lives are being improved through the work of these organizations.

13 CASA Major Programs CASA provides community volunteers to advocate in Davidson County Juvenile Court for children who have been abused, neglected or abandoned. Goal is to get them out of abusive homes and into safe, permanent homes as quickly as possible. Why CASA is Rewarding: Due to a burgeoning caseload, DCS finds it difficult at times to give a child s case an individualized and in-depth investigation. CASA s involvement becomes essential in expediting the child s case through the judicial system. Without CASA s involvement, some children would remain in foster care for years, when it would be in the best interest of the child to receive a permanent, stable, loving home placement or adoption. CASA s program is preventative in nature, in that it helps to avoid needless inertia in the resolution of a child s case. Such inertia and the resulting feelings of displacement, shuffling, and impermanence that a child may feel because of extended foster care can contribute to emotional problems in the critical formative years of the child. Consequently, the involvement of a CASA volunteer aids not only in the physical well-being, but the emotional well-being of the child as well. The CASA volunteer can make a tremendous difference in the life of a child. CASA provides the opportunity for caring adults to become actively involved in meeting the needs of the abused, neglected and abandoned children in our community. CASA Volunteer Training: Initial CASA volunteer training consists of 33 hours of classroom work and can be completed in as little as six weeks. After that, each CASA volunteer must complete 12 hours of in-service training per year after graduation. Continuing education continues throughout each assignment, including consultations with program staff and seminars on topics related to child advocacy, child abuse and neglect. The CASA program staff is always available to answer questions and provide support and guidance. Number of employees: 11 Number of volunteers: 200+ Revenue: $735,480 Expense: $718,489 Member of the Center for Non-Profit Management? Yes 9

14 CASA Mission: The mission of CASA is to provide trained volunteers to advocate for the best interests of children who come to the attention of the court primarily as a result of abuse or neglect. CASA It shouldn t hurt to be a child. Unfortunately, too many children in our community are abused and neglected in their homes by the people who are supposed to love them the most. When children are removed from their homes and their case is in the court system, a judge must determine where they should go. Should they remain in foster care? Be reunited with parents? Or be adopted? CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) volunteers are trained to be the voice of these vulnerable child victims of abuse to inform the court of the safest place for the children to live. Most people don t know that CASA is the only organization authorized by Tennessee State law to provide this valuable service to the court on behalf of our abused and neglected children. When a CASA volunteer is appointed to a case, the results are remarkable. The children are: more likely to stay out of the child welfare system more likely to stop continually moving from foster home to foster home more likely to be adopted more likely to be successful in school more like to remain in a stable, caring home We are proud of the 200+ CASA volunteers who invest their personal time to serve over 500 abused and neglected children in Nashville each year. Our goal is to provide a CASA volunteer for every one of the nearly 2,000 children who need a CASA volunteer. They all have a right to be safe. Website: GivingMatters.com Keyword: CASA, Inc.

16 First Steps Mission: To care for children with special needs and medical conditions alongside their typically developing peers in an inclusive environment and support their families. Inc. First Steps First Steps has a 50-year history of providing individualized education to children in the Nashville community, including those who have been turned away from other programs due to the severity of their health issues, medical needs or limited resources. First steps, regardless of child condition or background, never turns a child away. It s an integral part of First Steps vision and mission to carry out a service where major emphasis is placed on turning no child away. By doing so, they find that they are able to empower that given child given their innate challenge. They are also aware that by empowering the child through various types of treatment and therapy, the family sees a huge benefit as well. This allows each individual child s potential to come out as any barrier to proper treatment and care is shattered. They prove to parents that there is an organization that cares for the treatment and development of their child, something they may not have ever seen before. First Steps realizes that no one knows children better than their parents. They seek to integrate the parent in as much of their work as possible. As a whole, the community is all the better by having a program that seeks to care for and develop children that otherwise would be turned away.
