Abused and neglected children need more than the foster care and child welfare system can provide. CASA for Children recruits, trains and supports citizen-volunteers who advocate for abused children in the community and in the courtroom. An abused child with a CASA volunteer is:
Twice as likely to be adopted, than to linger in long-term foster care
Half as likely to re-enter the foster care system
More likely to have a plan for finding a permanent home, especially children of color
More likely to have better educational achievement
In Atlantic and Cape May Counties last fiscal year, 475 children had a CASA volunteer. A trusted adult who will stay with them until their case is resolved. But nearly 600 children are still waiting.
If you suspect a child is being abused or neglected contact New Jersey Division of Youth and Family Services at 1-877-NJ-ABUSE (1-877-652-2873).
