For 25 years, Court Appointed Special Advocates has represented children at the center of abuse and neglect cases in the New Hampshire Court System. CASA of NH is a nonprofit organization that recruits, trains and supervises volunteer guardians ad litem who advocate for these children. Since 1989, CASA has worked on behalf of more than 9,000 children in New Hampshire thanks to the work of hundreds of volunteers. However, the need for additional volunteers is ongoing. CASA of NH is able to meet the needs of about 80 percent of the abuse and neglect cases in the state.
The organization is currently recruiting volunteers in an effort to be able to represent every child who has come to the attention of the courts. CASA of NH 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.
