We realize how many incredible organizations and noble causes there are in our county, our state, and across the nation.
Please realize that a gift to CASA helps people in your own backyard. If you live in Bergen County your gift goes directly to help children in foster care in Bergen County.
Though our organization functions to a great degree because of our volunteers, we do have some necessary operating costs. Since we have to be in compliance with National CASA Association and the NJ Administrative Office of the Courts, our staff provide the necessary detailed documentation to keep our children safe. Our staff also recruit, screen, train and supervise our volunteers. Thanks to the generosity of the Bergen County Executive and the Bergen County Freeholder Board, we have space in their building at a very low cost. However, we do have the usual costs of running an office.
Although the number of children living in out-of-home placements is constantly changing, only one-third to one half of the children who are deemed by a judge to need a CASA are provided one through Bergen CASA. Our goal here in Bergen is to serve EVERY child who needs a CASA, and we can’t do that without your help.
