CASA of New Hampshire

Casa2021profile

2021 Goals:

Court Appointed Special Advocates of New Hampshire (CASA) provides highly trained, caring adults to be the voice for an abused or neglected child in New Hampshire’s family courts. Through focused recruitment strategies, our goal is to provide an advocate for every child in need. Our professional staff provides training, ongoing education and dedicated support to our 500+ volunteer advocates.


Fundraising Events:

We are reviewing our event format for 2021 in order to ensure the safety of our guests. CASA Cares, our annual gala, will be held in September in a virtual format. We are in the process of confirming the dates and logistics of Snowfest (typically held in February) and On Tap for CASA (typically held in March). Please join our email list for updates at casanh.org.

Giving Opportunities:

CASA depends on a variety of funding sources including fundraising events and private donations. Annual Giving — your one-time gift or monthly donation will help us reach every child. Donate online at casanh.org/donate. Community Donations — businesses and community groups statewide hold fundraisers and donate the proceeds to CASA of New Hampshire. Interested groups should contact us at 603-626-4600. Sponsorships — CASA of New Hampshire’s fundraising events, annual celebration and training classes all benefit from your corporate underwriting support. Legacy Giving — leave a lasting impact on New Hampshire’s children by considering CASA in your estate plan. Charity of Choice — Make CASA your  “Charity of Choice” and receive extensive visibility as well as fun opportunities for employee engagement. Cards for a Cause — purchase customizable greeting cards featuring the work of New Hampshire artists, perfect for holiday greetings, thank-you notes and everyday use. Visit casanh.org/cards for more.

Volunteer Opportunities:

Volunteer advocates are critically needed statewide to provide a voice for a neglected or abused child. Interested volunteers receive comprehensive pre-service training (online training is now available) and dedicated, ongoing support from professional staff. Share 10-15 hours of your time each month and make a significant impact in the life of a vulnerable child. Learn more about the volunteer role at casanh.org/volunteer. Committee and event volunteers are needed in a variety of capacities. Contact CASA of New Hampshire for a list of options.
