Moving from Foster home to Foster home makes every child feel homeless.

About

Who we are:

Passaic County CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) provides advocacy for children in the Passaic County, NJ foster care system- currently over 500 children are waiting for a volunteer to speak up for them and to ensure that they don't fall between the cracks of the system.

The Role:

CASA volunteers are trained to advocate for children who are in the foster care system due to abuse or neglect. These children are caught in the tangle of the legal system and need someone to speak up for them.

CASA volunteers are responsible for recommending the best interests of their assigned child in the court process and facilitating with professionals.
