Since 2006, Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Ocean County, an independent non-profit, has served as a voice in the courtroom for abused and neglected foster children. We recruit and train concerned citizens to serve as a CASA volunteer. By meeting with the child’s family members, doctors, teachers, and foster parents, the CASA volunteer ensures that the judge in the family court system is aware of all the facts to make the best determination for the child’s future.
Making sure children get a proper education is one of our top priorities
We provide the emotional support these children need to be happy and healthy
We ensure every child has the proper medical care and attention they deserve.
A child is abused every hour in New Jersey, and in Ocean County.
More than 700 children have been removed from their homes in Ocean County due to abuse and neglect.
There are 16 independent CASA programs serving each of the NJ court vicinages.
