Volunteers Needed to Advocate for Children in Foster Care

Press Release 12/23/16

NEW BRUNSWICK – Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Middlesex County has current openings for volunteers to advocate for children from Middlesex County who have experienced abuse or neglect.

CASA volunteers are appointed by a judge to speak for a child’s best interests.  They meet with the child and research the child’s circumstances with the goal of securing a safe and permanent home for the child as quickly as possible. CASA volunteers come from all walks of life, with no special background needed.  Applicants must be at least 21 years of age and pass background checks.

The next volunteer training session begins on February 21, 2017. Applications must be received by Friday, February 3. If you are interested in volunteering call (732) 246-4449, email melanie@casaofmiddlesexcounty.org, or visit www.casaofmiddlesexcounty.org/volunteer for more information and a volunteer application.
