In an effort to raise awareness for children who are victims of abuse and neglect during April’s National Child Abuse Awareness and Prevention Month, New Jersey’s Governor Chris Christie designated Friday,  April , as “CASA Child Advocate Day.” CASA of Morris and Sussex Counties recognized this day by engaging the community to “Go Blue” by wearing denim to school or work.

In exchange for wearing blue, each participant donated $5 to CASA. The goal of this event was not only to raise funds to support daily advocacy for these children, but also to heighten awareness of the plight of the most vulnerable children in the community.

CASA of Morris and Sussex Counties trains volunteers to work one-on-one with an abused or neglected child or sibling group, advocating for each child’s best interests.  Essentially, CASA volunteers “speak up” for these children in the court and child welfare systems, making sure they are safe and well-cared for, are receiving the services they need, and are placed in permanent, safe, nurturing homes as quickly as possible.
