CASA of N.H. holding information lunch April 23

April 16th, 2014 by Tim

For more than 25 years Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) has represented children at the center of abuse and neglect cases in the New Hampshire court system.

The Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of New Hampshire is holding a brown-bag lunch Wednesday April 23, to share the story of their work on behalf of vulnerable New Hampshire Youth. The event will be held Wednesday April 23 from noon until 1:30 p.m. at the Plymouth State University Welcome Center. Plymouth State University and the Plymouth Regional Chamber of Commerce are helping to host this event. In addition to discovering more about CASA, participants will learn how they can become a CASA volunteer. The event is free and open to the public. No registration is required.

CASA of N.H. recruits, trains and supervises guardians ad litem, individuals appointed by the court to advocate for the best interests of children. A non-profit organization, CASA has worked on behalf of more than 9,000 New Hampshire children since its founding in 1989. This service is possible with the help of hundreds of trained volunteers. However, CASA can only meet the needs of 80 percent of N.H.’s abuse and neglect cases. Volunteers are needed to represent every child who has come to the attention of the courts.

CASA of N.H. is central to fulfilling society’s most fundamental obligation by making sure a qualified, compassionate adult will fight for and protect a child’s right to be safe, to be treated with dignity and respect, and to learn and grow in the security of a loving family.
