Mission

Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) grew out of an identified need for abused and neglected children to have an advocate representing their best interests in the judicial system. Begun in Seattle, WA in 1977, CASA provided a way for ordinary citizens who were concerned about children to become involved in securing their future. CASA carefully screens and thoroughly trains individuals to provide a powerful voice for children in the court system. Supervised by experienced staff members, these extraordinary volunteers make a huge difference for young victims who could so easily become lost in confusing, complex, and overburdened child welfare and judicial systems.

Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

We are working to be able to cover 100% of the children case load in NH but without the grants and donations we are only able to cover 80% currently. We need these donations and grants to be able to increase our capacity.

Advocates for Abused & Neglected Children

CASA of New Hampshire serves abused and neglected children in all areas of the state. Our major initiative is to recruit, screen, train and supervise volunteers to speak for these child victims in the court system. To accomplish this, we provide a 40-hour pre-service training program, ongoing in-service trainings and support groups. An additional by-product is that the public at large becomes more aware of the issues surrounding abuse and neglect and better educated concerning ways ordinary citizens can bring positive change.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our goal is be able to advocate for 100% of the neglected and abused children in the NH Court system with our trained Volunteer GAL's

To be able to recruit all the needed volunteers to meet our goal

We have worked with the local media to help promote this need. Once volunteers are attained then they are put through a training process.

Every year we have been able to increase the number of cases we have been assigned and help these children
