Court Appointed Special Advocates of NH

Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of New Hampshire is a statewide child advocacy organization that recruits, trains and supports volunteer guardians ad litem (GALs) who advocate for the best interests of New Hampshire's abused and neglected children in family court proceedings. These are children who've done nothing wrong, but have come to the attention of the courts because they have been severely abused or nelgected by their parents or primary caregivers. CASA volunteer GALS are the eyes and ears for the court. They get to know the child or children they are advocating for and make recommendations to a judge about what they think will be best for that child going forward.

CASA of New Hampshire was founded by CEO and President Marcia Sink in 1989. It is a chapter of National Court Appointed Special Advocates Association which has more than 900 CASA programs around the country. Since its inception, CASA of New Hampshire has had a vision of providing a passionate, tireless advocate for every child who needs one. CASA is currently able to meet about 87% percent of the need and hopes to soon be able to say it has the capacity to serve 100 percent.

CASA of New Hampshire strives to protect the rights of our state's most vulnerable children to live, learn and grow in the embrace of a loving family.
