Marcia (Marty) Sink

President and CEO

While serving as a foster parent — and subsequently adopting a foster child who became one of her three sons – Marty Sink realized the victimized children of New Hampshire needed advocates to give them a voice in court. In 1988 she founded CASA of NH, bringing the Seattle-based concept of providing volunteer court advocates to the victimized children of New Hampshire. Through vision, diligence, hard work and integrity, CASA has been welcomed into District and Family Courts all over the state.

Through the years Marty actively participated on many state and national committees, task forces and boards including:
· National CASA – Former President, Board of Directors; Chair, Education & Public Awareness Committee
· Executive Committee Member, Merrimack County Model Court Project
· Council Member, Gethsemane Lutheran Church, Manchester, NH
· New Hampshire Citizens’ Commission on State Courts
· New Hampshire Commission on Adoption
· New Hampshire Attorney General’s Task Force on Child Abuse and Neglect
· New Hampshire Child Fatality Review Team
· New Hampshire Court Improvement Project Advisory Board
· New Hampshire Guardian ad Litem Board
