Abused, abandoned, and neglected children are taken from their homes and placed into foster care every day, more than 500 children in Ocean County, NJ alone. There are not enough trained volunteers to help make sure that the educational, emotional, and medical needs of these children are identified and met. You can make a difference… one child at a time.
CASA volunteers are ordinary men and women of all ages, from all walks of life, and of various ethnic, vocational, and educational backgrounds. As a volunteer, you will form a special one-on-one relationship with your assigned child. CASA volunteers interact with the child, family members, social workers, healthcare providers, teachers and other relevant individuals to become a knowledgeable advocate for the child’s needs. CASA will provide all of the training you will require to become a powerful voice for the child’s best interest.
