CASA of NH works year round to provide quality services to the children victims of abuse and / or neglect. We recruit, screen, train, then support and supervise our citizen volunteer advocates. Our volunteers are trained as Guardian ad Litem, get to know the child and then present and represent their best interest in the court system. Our agency saves the state millions of dollars each year since this service is at no cost to the courts.
