“I am honored to work with CASA of NH’s incredible team of dedicated staff and volunteers. CASA’s services in support of our state’s abused and neglected children are what help so many find the stable, loving, and permanent homes they need. I am proud to support the work of an organization so deeply committed to protecting the health and well-being of NH’s children – they are, after all, our future.”
