Volunteers sought to aid foster care children
Are you interested in helping children in the foster care system? If so, Hudson County CASA (court appointed special advocate) is recruiting volunteers to assist in advancing the interests of abused and neglected children.
“CASA works through trained community volunteers to ensure that needed services and assistance are made available to children while helping to move them toward safe and permanent homes,” said spokeswoman Meghan Garcia.
An information session will be held Tuesday, July 9, from 6 to 7 p.m., Room 400, at the Hudson County Administration Building, 595 Newark Ave., Jersey City.
CASA and its volunteers speak for children in court, serve as fact finders for judges, and advocate for children while they are in the foster care system. Hudson County has nearly 700 children in foster care; most have been removed from their homes for abuse or neglect.
To learn more about CASA, call (201) 795-9855, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.hudsoncountycasa.org.
Two children fall out of third-story window
A 5-year-old girl and her 4-year-old brother fell out of a window on the third floor of a North Bergen residence on Tuesday, June 25.
Witnesses said the children saw a friend on the ground and went to wave to the child when the screen in the window gave way.
On Wednesday morning, the girl was in guarded but stable condition at the Jersey City Medical Center and the boy was in critical condition.
A neighbor told WNBC news, “They looked small. They weren’t moving.”
Landlords of buildings are required to put child safety guards on windows if parents request them.
