Advocate for Abused & Neglected Children in NH

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Idealist.org

Recruiting Organization: Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of NH

CASA volunteers are ordinary women and men who step forward to advocate in court for children who have experienced abuse or neglect. Volunteers spend time getting to know the child or children they are working with and gather information from the important adults in each child’s life so they may make qualified, unbiased recommendations to a judge about what they believe to be in the best interests of the child.

Our volunteers help change a child’s story from one of abuse or neglect, to stability and security.

Volunteers:

  • Spend quality time getting to know the child on their case
  • Speak regularly with parents, relatives, foster parents, social workers, teachers and medical providers
  • Identify any unmet needs of the child and determine solutions with child’s support team
  • Write a court reports, attend court hearings and speak to the judge about the child’s progress

Volunteers spend about 10-15 hours a month on their case, with more time spent in the first 90 days of the case assignment. They stay with the case until the child is in a safe, permanent home or another permanent solution is in place.
