Every year 2,000 children pass through the foster care system in Essex County, removed from their homes and placed 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!  Ready to learn more?
