Fourteen new advocates join CASA to speak up for children

Passaic County children in foster care now have 14 new Court Appointed Special Advocates to speak up for their best interests.

Superior Court Judges Imre Karaszegi and Vicki Citrino confirmed the new volunteer advocates in two swearing-in ceremonies at the Passaic County Superior Court in Paterson. 

Each Court Appointed Special Advocate volunteer will now be assigned to a child who has been removed from home and placed into foster care due to allegations of abuse or neglect. The volunteer will get to know the child; gather information about the child’s educational, medical, emotional, and physical needs; speak with all of the people in the child’s life; and make informed recommendations to the Family Court Judge about what is in the child’s best interest.

We are thrilled to have these passionate, dedicated, and just generally wonderful volunteers join the CASA family.  Congrats!
