For many people, the holidays are a time to make happy memories with family. Unfortunately, there are almost 600 children in Passaic County who are not experiencing joy this holiday season. They are in the foster care system because of abuse or neglect. Instead of spending time with loved ones, they are attending court hearings, adjusting to new foster homes and transitioning to new schools. That’s a heavy burden for a child to carry alone.
With a dedicated CASA volunteer by their side, these children will have an adult to speak up for their best interests in the courtroom and community, and to help them find the road home, wherever it lies. On any given day this holiday season, more than 70 volunteers are showing Passaic County's most vulnerable children that they are special and there is hope for a brighter future.
We at Passaic County CASA are determined to make sure every child who has experienced abuse or neglect has the opportunity to thrive in a safe and loving home. Your generous support makes our work on behalf of these vulnerable children possible. Please consider making a gift to support our growth in 2018.
“Give time, give funds, give more opportunities to Passaic County children in foster care.”
