CASA of New Hampshire


2023 Goals:

Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of New Hampshire is working to grow its volunteer base to meet an increase in need. These highly trained, caring adults are the voice in New Hampshire’s family courts for children who have experienced abuse and neglect. CASA’s professional staff provides training, ongoing education and support to 600+ advocates. Through focused recruitment strategies, the goal is to have enough advocates for every child who needs one by their side.

Fundraising Events:

CASA Cares, our annual gala, will be held on May 5, 2023, at the DoubleTree by Hilton in downtown Manchester. Please visit for updates. On Tap for CASA, our signature barstool fundraiser, will be March 11 at New England’s Taphouse Grille in Hooksett.
