This training would not have been possible without the generous support and expertise of Whole System Learning, especially Ruth Carlson, who donated her time and skills to develop this CASA Medical Advocacy Training Program and Facilitator Training. CASA of New Jersey is equally indebted to Whole-System Learning’s creator, William Spencer, for his gracious contribution of time and devotion to the children of New Jersey served by CASA volunteers. 

Finally, we would like to thank the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation for its trust and vision in funding this important project and helping CASA meet the healthcare needs of children in out-of-home placement.
