Elizabeth, NJ – Union County Family Court Judge Daniel R. Lindemann recently administered the oath to CASA of Union County’s Class 27, during a swearing-in ceremony at the Union County Courthouse. The seven newest CASAs completed a 30-hour training program with CASA of Union County, a non-profit organization committed to advocating for foster children in out-of-home placement due to abuse and neglect. As unbiased eyes and ears of the court, CASA advocates play a vital role in assessing the foster child’s out-of-home placement. The relationship CASAs form with the foster child is critical to the outcome of his or her case before the court. After the ceremony, a reception was held for the newest CASAs and their guests at Michelino’s Restaurant in Elizabeth.

Among those at the swearing-in were, from left, back, Executive Director Dominic Prophete, Carmen Musical of Mountainside, Susan Brotoski of Union, Elizabeth Satchell of Plainfield, existing CASA and board member Ron Silver, and Wendy Greenspan of Clark; front, from left, Abby Gallego of Elizabeth, and Tracy Jackson of Vauxhall.
