ORGANIZATION: CASA for Children of Passaic County

  • 18 people are interested

Children and teenagers in foster care need caring, compassionate adults to offer support and advocate for their needs while they are involved in the child welfare system. You can take on this role and change a child's life as a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) volunteer.

From helping siblings find permanent homes together to uncovering information that helps reunite a loving family, volunteer advocates make an incredible difference in the lives of abused and neglected children. The best way to learn about this volunteer opportunity is to attend an upcoming information session. During the information session, participants will hear about the foster care system, volunteer requirements, pre-service training, and how CASA volunteers change lives.

About CASA for Children of Passaic County


415 Hamburg Turnpike, Suite D2, Wayne, NJ 07470, US

Mission Statement

Passaic County Court Appointed Special Advocates is an independent, non-profit organization that champions the best interests of children involved in the child welfare system. CASA volunteers serve as a child's advocate in court and are committed to ensuring that needed services and assistance are made available to children in need.


Every year more than half a million abused and neglected children are in need of safe, permanent, nurturing homes. Right now in Passaic County, there are over 300 children in out of home foster care.

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 has an individual advocate to speak for them in court.

It is the CASA vision to provide a volunteer for each and every abused and neglected child who needs one.
