Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) for Children of Essex County will host an information session at the Verona Community Center, 880 Bloomfield Avenue, on Wednesday, February 27, at 11 a.m. for community members interested in learning how they can speak up for Essex County’s abused and neglected children in foster care. CASA volunteer advocates are everyday citizens appointed by the Family Court to gather information about a child’s needs while in foster care and to speak up for the best interests of these children in court.

The meeting will provide an overview of the foster care system in Essex County, the impact of CASA’s work in the community, and the role of a CASA volunteer. Attendees will have the opportunity to meet a local advocate and have any questions answered. There are 1,700 children in foster care in Essex County.

No special background or education is required to become a CASA volunteer advocate, but registration is required for the information meeting.  If you have questions, contact Jess at (973) 622-4831 or [email protected]
