At Bergen County CASA, our volunteer Child Advocates are the heart and soul of our non-profit organization based in northern New Jersey.
Our NJ foster children come from towns located throughout the county including Hackensack, Fort Lee, Garfield, Lodi, and beyond. We offer advocate volunteer opportunities for qualified, responsible, adults.
Some volunteers become Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) while others work behind the scenes in administrative and other support capacities.

What does a Child Advocate do you might ask?
They regularly speak to everyone involved in their appointed child’s life:
- foster parents and biological parents
- case workers etc
They visit the child regularly so that the child learns they have someone they can rely upon and trust.
There are many ways to support our programs. You may make a one-time or recurring monetary donation, work with your employer to establish a matching grant program, or become a corporate sponsor. The funds help us fulfill our mission to positively impact Bergen County’s foster children.
Bergen County CASA is a non-profit organization that supports and promotes court appointed volunteer advocacy for children in the foster care 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 the opportunity to thrive. We train and supervise volunteers to be Child Advocates operating on behalf of the best interest of this county’s foster children.
