About

Thank you for looking at this opportunity.

If you have a heart for helping children in foster care, we would LOVE to hear from you.

CASA works with children that have been abused and/or neglected and are currently in the foster care system.

You will be trained to become an advocate for the child(ren) on your case so that you can help the courts know what is in the best interest of the child in terms of helping them find a permanent "forever" home. You will be the "eyes and the ears" for the judge by visiting the child(ren) once a month. You will advocate for what would be best for the child in terms of their future placement, typically to be reunified with their biological parents or to find a new adoptive home.

This is such an important work and is rewarding both to see your impact on helping a child have a voice as well as to enrich your own life.

Please contact us today at 508-TRY-CASA x106, go to www.casaworcester.com, or email us at volunteers@thecasaproject.org

Don't wait! We would love to get you into our next training class as soon as possible.

Thanks so much!
