Give a Child a
Voice, a Home, a Hope, a Future.
On an average day in Worcester County, MA, 1,400 abused, neglected or exploited
children live in foster care because they cannot live safely at home. Over 675
children arrive for help into our juvenile court system each year. Most of
these children are younger than age 11, and all are hurt, frightened, and
Worcester County ’s children desperately need powerful voices to speak up for
their best interests in court.
we are- Court Appointed Special Advocates/Guardian Ad Litem (CASA/GALs) of
Worcester County is a not-for-profit organization committed to speaking for the
best interests of abused and neglected children in the Worcester County Courts.
Founded in 1981, the CASA Project’s Court advocacy program recruits, trains and
supervises volunteers (CASA/GALs) who are appointed by a judge to serve one
child or sibling group at a time. All of the children are victims, and need a
voice to ensure they grow up in a safe and permanent home.
In 2013 we served over 560 children, with 180 active
volunteers. We desperately need your help to reach our goal of serving every
child in Worcester County involved in a Care & Protection petition by the
year 2020. EVERY SINGLE DONATION COUNTS and helps us to make a very real difference
in a child’s life.
Please help care for our Worcester County children for whom for whom few things
in life have gone right. Volunteer your time and Donate your resources.You will give a child a voice, a home, a hope, a future.
