The Season Of Giving Is Upon Us... Will you be the voice for the abused and neglected children in Ocean County? There are children living in our community that have no one to speak up for them. They are the over 700 children residing in Ocean County’s foster care system. When parents are unable, unwilling or unfit to care for a child, the child is removed from the home. The time they spend in foster care is often confusing, scary and, unfortunately, leaves them feeling isolated and alone.

Every foster child deserves a CASA volunteer. Stand up for these children. Stay connected as we fight to ensure every child has a safe, permanent, loving home.

Volunteer Your Time to Change a Child's Life! What Do CASA Volunteers Do? CASA volunteers listen and get to know the child by talking with everyone in that child's life; They share this information to inform judges and others of the child’s needs. They help secure the best permanent home for them. Interested in helping children but not ready to commit to becoming an advocate? Then consider sponsoring a child and providing them with a CASA of their own. Call our office today to become a volunteer or sponsor a child. Please call Executive Director, Ariane Yazdan, at 732-797-0590 or visit our website at www.casaofoceancounty.org.

Inspire A Child! There are many ways CASA volunteers help a child in need. By spending time with them and encouraging their imagination, these children are better able to express themselves and cope with the uncertainty and fear. The Creativity Fund is a partnership with the Creativity Studio that funds art and creative activities for CASA kids.
