From the Casa Project website:
“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 confused victims.
Worcester County ’s children desperately need powerful voices to speak up for their best interests in court.For over 30 years, CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) Worcester County has been training volunteer advocates to help these children navigate through the foster care and court systems. With our court system overflowing and under-resourced, judges and social workers simply cannot do this often-heartbreaking task alone. That’s where The CASA Project enters the picture.Please help care for our Worcester County children for whom few things in life have gone right. You will give a child a voice, a home, a hope, a future.”
