UPDATE: Scroll down to see team photos from this year’s GO BLUE Day!
Weinberger Law Group is proud to support CASA’s GO BLUE campaign in support of New Jersey’s Child Advocate Day, this Friday, April 6.
CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) performs extremely important work on behalf of children who have been abused and neglected. To raise awareness about CASA’s mission, team members at all offices will wear blue as a show of support.
Want to learn more about CASA? Here is some information to get you started:
CASA of a New Jersey is a non-profit group of volunteers who train to become special court advocates for children who have been abused or neglected, and placed in the foster care system. Their goal is to ensure that all of these children are placed in safe, loving and appropriate homes and not left to languish in unstable or inappropriate facilities. They speak on behalf of these children in the family courts, and advocate for the best possible placement for kids, and for needed services. As family law attorneys who regularly represent families in crisis, we understand fully the value of and need for the wonderful advocates at CASA of New Jersey and all across the United States.
CASA’s GO BLUE campaign helps to raise awareness and also additional funding for the group, which relies on corporate and individual contributions to survive. The small federal and state grants they receive simply do not go far enough to cover all of the program’s needs. The GO BLUE campaign is a dress down day at the office where wearing blue jeans or any other blue item of clothing indicates that you are behind the organization’s mission and standing up to end child abuse and neglect across our nation. In exchange for wearing blue or blue jeans to work that day, employees make a donation to CASA.
Weinberger Law Group proudly supports CASA’s mission to assist children who desperately need an advocate and a strong voice in an extremely difficult time in their lives.
April is Child Abuse Prevention Month and Friday April 6th is the national awareness day for CASA. We strongly encourage you to show your support for CASA and join us in celebrating and supporting the work that CASA does all year. Consider donating or even volunteering to become a Court Appointed Special Advocate. Make a difference in a child’s life!
