CASA’s shares educational Amazon Wish List for Worcester County kids. Please help if you can!
On an average day in Worcester County, MA, 1,700 abused, neglected or exploited children live in foster care because they cannot live safely at home. Nearly 800 arrive for help into our juvenile court system each year. Most of these children are younger than age 12 – nearly half are under 6 — and all are hurt, frightened, and confused.
Since its founding in 1981, The CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) Project, has provided thousands of children with the voice they needed in court. The CASA Project’s Court advocacy program recruits, trains and supervises volunteers (CASA/GALs) who are appointed by a judge to serve one child or sibling group at a time. As a result, these children have grown up with a safe home, a sense of hope, and a true future. Read more about CASA’s mission!
A Call for Donations for Those in Need
The Covid-19 outbreak and subsequent quarantine of communities has forced online learning for students across the county. Many children from low income families will be left behind as they lack learning materials and therefore access to education.
