On October 21, a Paint N Sip virtual event ensued. The resident artist is our multi-talented Passaic County Center Manager, Shealine Black. Thank you Shealine for an engaging evening of fun and paint!
Rita N has been with the Ocean County DH Program since January, 2020. She has actively participated in workshops, computer classes and interacted with the DHP staff. We are so excited because Rita has been progressing on her journey and she has decided to give back to her community!
We would like to recognize Rita N and congratulate her regarding her recent accomplishment. Rita has been accepted by CASA as a Volunteer Advocate.
CASA requires the following:
Advocate trainees are required to complete 30 hours of pre-service training and pass rigorous background checks before being sworn in with the courts as a CASA Volunteer Advocate. Their role (as stated in the Mission Statement) is to act as the voice for foster children who have been removed from their homes due to abuse and neglect.
CASA Advocates are often the only steady, adult presence in a foster child’s life as they navigate the tumultuous foster care system.
CASA Advocates connect with the foster children assigned to them in order to provide judges with a fuller picture of the child’s life and their world. We work closely with the foster families, DCPP workers, schools and all other persons involved in the child’s day-to-day life.
CASAs submit court reports and appear in court on behalf of the children they serve.
The Displaced Homemakers Program of Ocean assists and mentors’ clients so that they can acquire skills and training to become employed and move toward self-sufficiency.
