CASA Project Seeks Volunteer Court Appointed Special Advocates
For more than 35 years, CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) Worcester County has been training volunteer advocates to speak for the best interests of abused and neglected children. CASA volunteers help these children navigate through the often overcrowded and under-resourced foster care and court systems.
CASA volunteers are appointed by a judge of the Worcester County Juvenile Court and are an official part of the judicial proceedings, working alongside attorneys and social workers. By handling only one or two cases at a time, a CASA volunteer has time to thoroughly explore the history and circumstances of each assigned case.
All CASA volunteers are provided with comprehensive training prior to case assignment.
