FEEDNH.org recently supported New Hampshire's CASA Cares event as a $10,000 Guardian Sponsor, allowing CASA New Hampshire to recruit and train five CASA Advocates who will in-turn provide support and advocacy services for up to 60 children in need!
Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of New Hampshire is a nonprofit that recruits, trains, and supports community volunteers to serve as advocates for children throughout the state who have experienced abused or neglect. CASA volunteer advocates get to know a child and the important people in that child’s life to provide vital information to help a judge make decisions based on the best interests of the child.
