Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) for Children of Atlantic and Cape May Counties and its trained volunteers speak on behalf of abused and neglected children in the foster care system and are dedicated to ensuring these children are placed in safe permanent homes as quickly as possible.
What We Do
CASA for Children recruits, trains and coaches community volunteers who advocate on behalf of abused and neglected children in our community. CASA advocates visit with the children and their families and have access to everyone involved in the child's life. Armed with that information, the advocates write court reports directly to the family court judge with recommendations for services and resources that are in the child’s best interests.CASA advocates stay with each case, and advocate for each child, until their case is resolved - either reunited with family, adopted or placed with a relative. The number one priority for each child is to help ensure that they are living in a secure, safe home.
