Each year, nearly 500 abused and neglected children in Bergen County need to be separated from their parents. The trauma these young people endured at the hands of their abusers, is only half of their battle though. Placement in an unfamiliar home, with no clear idea of what their future holds, only serves to exacerbate their battered spirits. They may have even been separated from their siblings, intensifying their feeling of isolation. These children need stability. They need someone to look out for them.
They need you.
Bergen County CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) is looking for compassionate, dedicated adults to represent foster children in Family Court. Bergen County CASA trains and supports community volunteers as they advocate for the best interests of children who have already suffered enough in their short lives.
