CASA of New Jersey
was created in 2000, after the establishment of CASA programs in Essex County in 1986 and Morris County in 1987, with the goal of addressing the need to expand CASA programs statewide. That goal was met and today a CASA program operates in every New Jersey county. CASA of New Jersey provides support to all CASA programs throughout the state, primarily through funding, training, public education and technical assistance. In addition, it provides a forum for local CASA programs to share resources and improve services, and it unifies CASA’s voice on behalf of children in foster care statewide.
