Boston CASA Program
The Boston CASA program, advocating for abused and neglected children since 1982.
ll children have a right to permanency and loving care. But each year, hundreds of thousands of children across the United States are abused, neglected, or abandoned by their families. In Suffolk County alone there are an estimated 9,000 reports of abuse and neglect. Many of these children are removed from their homes and placed in foster care. There are over 900 children in foster care in the Boston area. These children eventually end up before the court where a judge must decide their future. Should they be reunited with their parents, remain in foster care, or be adopted?
Enter the CASA ... Court Appointed Special Advocate.
The Boston CASA program recruits, trains and supervises volunteers from the community who are appointed as a child's guardian ad litem (GAL). The focus of these volunteers is to protect and promote the "Best Interest" of children who have been abused or neglected and are court involved. The Boston CASA program is designed to aid the court in making decisions that are difficult and will impact the lives of children and their families forever.
The CASA/GAL works hard to ensure that these children are not overlooked in an already over-burdened court system.
CASA Volunteers come from all walks of life.
They have a variety of professional, educational and ethnic backgrounds.
They are selected on the quality of their objectivity, competence and commitment.
