Court Appointed Special Advocates of Cumberland, Gloucester and Salem Counties
CASA is a local organization that advocates for abused and neglected children to ensure that their needs do not go unheard. CASA volunteers are appointed by judges to watch over and advocate for abused and neglected children, make sure they don’t get lost in the overburdened legal and social service system or languish in inappropriate group or foster homes. Volunteers stay with each case until it is closed and the child is placed in a safe , permanent home. For many abused children, their CASA volunteer will be the one constant adult presence in their lives.
