Throughout December, we are highlighting each of the organizations featured in our Jersey Give-Back Guide, which is a website designed to help you learn about some of New Jersey’s most effective nonprofits as you are thinking about making your year-end donations. On Day 4 of the “15 Days of Generating Generosity” please get to know the extraordinary work of Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Morris & Sussex Counties.
A CASA volunteer is an ordinary individual who rises to the extraordinary by making a difference in the life of an abused or neglected child in the foster care system. CASA volunteers are our fellow community members who have stepped up to spend countless hours being trained to be effective advocates for foster children, and countless hours finding safe, permanent homes where our most vulnerable children are well cared for and protected. Every child in the foster care system needs a caring, committed CASA volunteer to be their voice and their champion, and we owe it to our state’s most vulnerable children to make sure they have one. Please give now.
