Children who have experienced abuse or neglect face a frightening, profound unknown. Courtrooms. Foster Care. New schools. A revolving door of well-meaning professionals. All while dealing with the trauma of abuse and neglect.

At CASA of Northern Connecticut, we make sure these children don’t face the foster care system alone. Our highly-trained court appointed special advocate (CASA) volunteers get to know each child and are by their side, advocating for their best interests in the courtroom and the community.

By supporting and becoming a part of CASA of Northern Connecticut you are helping Connecticut’s most vulnerable children in their time of greatest need.
