16 new advocates graduated from CASA’s required 40-hour training this week; 16 individuals from all different backgrounds came together to stand up for New Hampshire’s most vulnerable children who need a voice. Pictured are some of the 500 courageous, selfless people in our state that are fighting for these children’s best interests.
As an advocate, you will attend anything from teacher conferences to court meetings. The training prepares our advocates to preform the tasks being handed to them and allows them the ability to make educated, well rounded recommendations on the child’s behalf.
Due to New Hampshire’s opioid epidemic, the number of child abuse and neglect cases has increased marginally over the few years. As cases continue to enter the system, we need more CASA volunteer advocates to speak up for victimized children.
Anyone can begin the process of becoming a court appointed special advocate for these children as there is always a need.

If you still have unanswered questions, we are always offering Community Receptions or Lunch & Learn events that are open to the public and will answer any of your questions or concerns you may have prior to starting the process.

Congratulations and welcome to the following advocates, and thank you for your dedication to New Hampshire’s children!
