Change a Child's Story
Each year, hundreds of Middlesex County children spend time in foster care. Often confused, frightened and caught in multiple government systems, these children need a dedicated, caring adult looking out solely for their best interests. By donating an average of just few hours a week, Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) make a real and lasting difference in the lives of these vulnerable children.
CASA of Middlesex County is seeking volunteers to help the many Middlesex County children who lack an advocate in their corner. We train and support our volunteers, equipping them with the knowledge and tools they need to succeed in helping children in foster care. As a CASA volunteer, you will be part of a supportive network of people dedicated to changing lives.
Children living in foster care have suffered trauma, abuse and neglect. They are often confused and fearful of their uncertain future. The well-intentioned systems designed to serve these vulnerable kids frequently overlook the needs of an individual child. That’s where CASA volunteers come in. These dedicated individuals work on the front lines with the courts, schools, healthcare providers and social services to ensure each child gets the needed help while in foster care and finds a safe, forever home as soon as possible.
CASA volunteers act as the “eyes and ears” of the family court system, providing critical information to help judges make the best decisions for children who have been removed from their biological families due to abuse or neglect.
