During a ceremony on December 8th, Carol Lukoff of South Orange along with 6 other volunteers were sworn in as a Court Appointed Special Advocate by the Honorable Judge Wayne Forrest of the Superior Court of New Jersey. The volunteers were officiated after successfully completing a 30 hour training course.

CASA for Children of Essex County is an independent court authorized nonprofit organization that trains volunteers to serve as advocates for children in foster care. CASA volunteers are appointed by the Family Court to gather information about a child’s needs while in foster care and to represent a “child’s voice in court.” For the over 2,000 foster children in Essex County, their time in out-of-home placement can often be lessened and their chances for trauma recovery greater through the presence of trained CASA Child Advocates.

CASA for Children of Essex County is actively seeking additional volunteers.  For more information call: 973-622-4831 or visit: www.casaessex.org.
