Save Money at Modell's Sporting Goods Stores in NJ and Bergen CASA Help Foster Children at The Same Time

Modell's has teamed up with CASA for Children of Bergen County to help support CASA's advocacy program for kids in foster care. Bergen CASA is part of the network of National CASA, which stands for Court-Appointed Special Advocates. These advocates are specially-trained volunteers that advocate for children in foster care. Once a child is removed from a home due to abuse and neglect and then placed in the child welfare system, a CASA advocate is assigned to that child to be the "go-to" adult. This adult develops a one-on-one relationship with the child and makes sure that the child is receiving the best care and services possible. The advocate stays with the child until the child finds a permanent placement, be it reunification with the family, a permanent placement or adoption.
