Welcome to Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA)
of Camden County, Inc.
In Camden County, New Jersey more than 1,500 children each year pass through the foster care system because of abuse, neglect, or abandonment. Their cases are brought before a Family Court Judge who sometimes has only a few minutes to make critical life-altering decisions about their future. Can they be safely reunited with their parents? Are there relatives or family friends who can care for them? Should they be placed for adoption? Making decisions about the lives of children and families is a heavy burden. A Family Court Judge needs accurate and up-to-date information to make the right decision for a foster child. That’s where CASA comes in!
CASA helps to provide information to Family Court Judges by using trained community volunteers to investigate the background of a foster care case and make recommendations to the Judge that will best help to move the child to a safe and permanent home as quickly as possible. Everyday ordinary people make a difference in the lives of the county’s most vulnerable citizens by becoming a CASA volunteer or helping to support others in this effort. We invite you to look around our website to learn more about how you can help make a difference too!
