SAVE THE DATE for our 16th Annual CASA Golf
August 11th, 2014 Wachusett Country Club, West
Give a Child a
Voice, a Home, a Hope, a Future.
On an average day in Worcester County, MA, 1,400 abused, neglected or exploited
children live in foster care because they cannot live safely at home. Over 675
children arrive for help into our juvenile court system each year. Most of
these children are younger than age 11, and all are hurt, frightened, and
Many of these cases read as if they were written for a
made up horror script, events so horrifying that no one should ever have to
witness in their life. A father murdering a mother in a blood curdling rage,
while the mother begs for her daughter to help. A mom losing 10 children to the
state because of homelessness and a penchant of hooking up with Level 3 sex
offenders. A case of sibling incest
where mom and dad just stood by and kept silent. Teenage boys so neglected by their
drug addicted parents that they are illiterate and in long term faculties. All are sickening cases in our own backyard
of Worcester, Fitchburg, Leominster, Milford and Gardner. These are the type of
cases CASA accepts, hoping to change and improve the lives of these children.
Worcester County ’s children desperately need powerful voices to speak up for
their best interests in court.
