Mission Statement

The mission of CASA is to speak for the best interests of abused and neglected children in the courts. 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.

Would you recommend CASA of Ocean County?

by Eileen Ann K. (October 28, 2011)
Because I believe that all children have a right to have an adult spend time with them to show these children that there are people in this world that really want to share things with these children. I want to volenteer so that I can hopefully have a positive impact on one of these childrens lives. I want the children to know that there are people here that care about them and want to do something for them to look foward to.
