CASA of Cumberland, Gloucester and Salem counties is in need of your help! On Sept. 24, superheroes like you are joining forces to fight child abuse with a Superhero 5K. Because you possess such extraordinary powers, we request your assistance in preparing other superheroes in our fight. Countless children are abused and neglected in our counties and we want to change that by speaking up and making a difference. Our mission is to find these children safe, permanent homes to give them the opportunity for a successful future. Research has shown that children with CASA volunteers: •Are half as likely to re-enter foster care •Are substantially less likely to spend time in long-term foster care •Are more likely to be adopted •Do better in school. With your help, we can make this possible. CASA of Cumberland, Gloucester, and Salem Counties is a non-profit organization of volunteers trained to advocate for the best interest of an abused or neglected child. At CASA we advocate for every child to be placed in a safe, permanent home as quickly as possible.
