WELCOME TO CASA FOR CHILDREN
OF MERCER & BURLINGTON COUNTIES
According to the NJ Administrative Office of the Courts, over 13,000 children in New Jersey lived in out-of-home placements in fiscal year 2015. Over 1,500 children in Mercer and Burlington Counties pass through the foster care system because of abuse, neglect or abandonment each year. Their cases are brought before a Family Court Judge who need to make critical, life-altering decisions about the children's futures. Family Court Judges need accurate, up-to-date information to make decisions which are in the children's best interests.
This is where CASA steps in.
A child's voice. A child's life. Lifted up. By you.
CASA is central to fulfilling society's most fundamental obligation by making sure a qualified, compassionate adult will fight for and protect a child's right to be safe, to be treated with dignity and respect, and to learn and grow in the security of a loving family..
