About CASA of Union County, Inc.

Location:

Albender Building, 1143-45 East Jersey St 2nd Floor, Elizabeth, NJ 07201, US

Mission Statement

The mission of CASA is to recruit, screen and train community volunteers to advocate for the best interest of foster care youth in Family Court. We promote and support quality volunteer representation for children to provide each child a safe, permanent, nurturing home.

Description

Every year more than half a million abused and neglected children are in need of safe, permanent, nurturing homes. That's where CASA steps in. CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) was created in 1977 to make sure the abuse and neglect these children originally suffered at home doesn't continue as abuse and neglect at the hands of the system. As trained advocates, CASA volunteers are appointed by judges to be a voice for these children in court. The result is that a child is placed into a safe, loving home where he/she can thrive. It is the CASA vision to provide a volunteer for each and every abused and neglected child who needs one.
