Help a Child

CASA for Children is a non-profit charitable organization which works through professionally trained and supervised volunteers to promote the welfare of foster children in Monmouth County, New Jersey who have been removed from their homes because of extreme parental abuse, neglect or abandonment. CASA serves as a child's "Voice in Court", working to insure that needed services and assistance are provided while helping to move the child toward a safe and permanent home.

Volunteers will be screened (fingerprinted and interviewed) before beginning an intesive training program. After volunteers complete training, they will be assigned either one child or a set of siblings. They will review DCP&P documents and interview the child(ren),relatives, teachers and others who may have impact on the child's life. Volunteers will then write reports which are submitted to the family court judge. They will also be asked to attend court hearings. Each volunteer is requested to make a minimum one year commitment to their child(ren).
