CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) of Bergen County is a non-profit organization that supports and promotes court-appointed volunteer advocacy for children in the foster system. CASA volunteers are committed to changing children’s stories so that any child who has experienced abuse or neglect can be safe, and have a permanent home, and the opportunity to thrive. As part of a CASA’s work to secure the services and assistance these vulnerable children need, we train and supervise volunteers who are called to advocate for their best interests. Online training is available. CASA also provides needed items to the children in foster care, such a birthday and holiday gifts and more.
