CASA NH seeks more volunteers

Court Appointed Special Advocates of New Hampshire needs help to meet its goal of providing an advocate to every abused or neglected child in New Hampshire who needs one.

CASA is seeking committed volunteers who enjoy a serious challenge to train to be guardians ad litem and advocate for children in their own communities.

Being a CASA volunteer is a life-changing experience. CASA volunteers work with families, social workers, attorneys and judges to ensure safe, permanent homes for these children.

They commit to a particular case and visit monthly with the child or children involved. They also attend all court hearings on the case and monitor its progress.

They spend an average of eight to 10 flexible hours a month per case and work with the courts closest to where they live. Training in the upcoming year is scheduled for Manchester, the North Country, Conway, Littleton, Upper Valley, Plymouth/Lakes Region, Dover/Seacoast and Keene/Claremont.

CASA of NH invites all interested individuals to learn more about the program, download the application or view the statewide training calendar at their website, casanh.org, or to call 800-626-0622 for more information.
