Court appointed special advocates
Our foster children come from Bergen County towns including: Hackensack, Fort Lee, Garfield, Lodi, and beyond. We offer Court Appointed Special Advocate volunteer opportunities for qualified, responsible, adults. Bergen County CASA is a non-profit organization that supports and promotes court appointed volunteer advocacy for children in the foster system.

Bergen County CASA recruits, screens and trains volunteers to be Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA). CASA’s are appointed to the case of a Bergen County foster child. They gather all the information they can about the child’s situation by regularly speaking to their appointed child’s:
- foster parents and biological parents
- case workers etc.
CASAs visit their appointed children regularly so that they learn they are someone their foster child can rely upon and trust at a time when everything is changing. Court Appointed Special Advocates are a constant, reliable adult at a time in a foster child’s life when everything and everyone is changing.
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 help Bergen County’s foster children.
