About Bergen CASA

Since our beginnings in 2003, Bergen CASA has grown to serve approximately 200 children a year, from birth to age 21, who are in the child welfare system. These children have been taken from the only families they’ve ever known, due to abuse or neglect. Our mission is fulfilled, and our organization is run largely (95%) by volunteers who are the heart and soul of what we do, and the donors who provide financial support.
