What we do at Bergen CASA

At CASA for Children of Bergen County, we recruit, screen and train individuals who become Court Appointed Special Advocates. The Family Court judiciary refer children to Bergen CASA who have been removed from their homes by the Division of Child Protection and Permanency and need our assistance; we then provide an advocate dedicated to one child or sibling group.

Within this system, the child will have a social worker, legal representation and others that are involved in their case, but a CASA fills a special role as the only adult specifically assigned to look out for the best interests of the child. Unlike the other people involved in a case, the CASA is the only adult who remains consistently with just that child or sibling group throughout the duration of the case.
