CASA History


The Court Appointed Special Advocates of Atlantic & Cape May Counties, Inc. has been operating since 1995. It was established by Mary, a foster care provider and mother of three, after grieving the death of a foster child who once resided in her home. Her mission was to work to prevent “even one more child from falling through the cracks of our child welfare proceedings.” The program operated on a small scale it its early years of existence.

In July of 2001, after receiving a grant from the National CASA Association, CASA of Atlantic & Cape May Counties, Inc. revitalized its board, hired new staff, and increased its overall operating capacity. Today, CASA of Atlantic & Cape May Counties, Inc. is serving over 260 children.
