Online Information Session: Become a Court Appointed Special Advocate for children in foster care

Save to Favorites

CASA of Middlesex County

  • 7 people are interested

Ready to change a life?

CASA of Middlesex County is seeking volunteers to advocate for children who have been abused or neglected. When a child is in foster care, having a CASA means they are more likely to find a permanent home, spend less time in foster care, and perform better in school. Champion one of these children from your community and safeguard a child’s well-being through advocacy in the court today.

The Information Session is online, but the volunteer work was and will be in-person after the Covid-19 pandemic is over. Please be aware that we are a local branch of the national organization, so we are looking for volunteers from Middlesex County, NJ

Mission Statement

CASA of Middlesex County is a non-profit organization dedicated to serving abused and neglected children who are living in out-of-home placements. CASA recruits and trains volunteers to advise the courts and advocate for the children’s best interests.

Description

Every year more than half a million abused and neglected children are in need of safe, permanent, nurturing homes. CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) was created in 1977 to ensure that the best interests of abused and neglected children were advcocated for in court for well-trained volunteer child-advocates. As trained advocates, CASA volunteers are appointed by judges to be voices for these children in court. Advocates conduct independent, fact-finding investigations, review records, and talk to everyone involved with their assigned cases. Their recommendations help insure that these children are placed into a safe, loving homes. It is the CASA vision to make a direct impact on children's lives.

"It's about helping a child replace a life of hurt with one of hope."
