Bergen CASA Advocate 4th Quarter Newsletter

Planned Parenthood Zoom Workshop

Thursday, October 7th, 2021, from 5:00 to 6:30pm

Planned Parenthood is one of the nation’s leading providers of high-quality, affordable health care, and the nation’s largest provider of sex education. With or without insurance, anyone can always access valuable health care at their locations. From health and wellness, to pregnancy, to gender identity, and relationship advice, Planned Parenthood has everyone covered especially our teens in foster care. 

“How old does a teen have to be to go to Planned Parenthood without parental consent and input?”

“Does their Medicaid cover the costs?”

“Will they be helped if they are young and alone?” 

“Can the CASA meet them there at the appointment?” 

“Should the CASA offer to accompany them?”  

Over the years, several of our teens have become pregnant. We need to know how best to support and advise them. We are very fortunate that Planned Parenthood has offered to provide us with this valuable training.  Please join us on October 7, 2021 from 5pm to 6:30pm to gain more knowledge and skills for your advocacy tool belts.
