We are a nonprofit organization dedicated to advocating for the best interest of children in foster care in Worcester County. Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASAs) are assigned to amplify the children’s voices, advocate for their best interests, and support them on their path towards a safe and permanent home.
Appointed by judges to help on the most heart-breaking cases in the foster care system, CASAs help abused and neglected children navigate the Worcester County Juvenile Courts, one child or sibling group at a time. CASAs report the best interests of the children to the judge, who uses the reports in their evaluation and decision on each case.
Statistics show that children who experience trauma fare better if they have one reliable, consistent adult in their lives. This is where CASA Volunteers help fill the gap.
