It is a tragic fact that child maltreatment occurs throughout our state, in every community, yet most of us are unaware of it because it rarely makes the news. Identities are protected, services put in place. We go on with our lives thinking all is well. This is your opportunity to make a difference in young lives.
CASA of NH, as a statewide non-profit, provides guardians ad litem to be the voice of these children in court proceedings. They help identify and advocate for what is in the child’s best interest and to ensure that child grows up in a safe and permanent home. The Dover CASA office will offer daytime training in March for men and women who wish to volunteer their time and talents in advocating for their community’s abused and neglected children.
The work is challenging, but rewarding. CASA/GALs have impacted the future of New Hampshire children for 25 years, and the goal as we enter 2015 is a CASA for every child in need. Help us reach it.
