Words From Our Current Volunteers

What is it like being a CASA volunteer? Why do they volunteer and get involved? Why we need YOU? Let them tell you:                                                    
 
"I became a CASA volunteer and donor because even in a little place like Worcester, the severity and complexity of the cases is staggering. My Goal as a CASA volunteer is to move the needle in the right direction into a desirable outcome; my contributions are not always profound and immediate. You have to trust that over the long run, you have a positive impact in all your cases. Your involvement will be rewarding, what you’re doing is right and has impact. Some (cases) will have a better outcome than if you had not been involved.” MS
 
 "Being a volunteer has opened my eyes to the cruelty of the world, given me a glimpse of reality that I was sheltered from. I know it is very important, but it is very frustrating at times. It opened my eyes to the cruel aspects of life; we get the best of the worst” JS
 
 "I think that in choosing to become a volunteer, it makes me feel like I can make a difference, it’s not easy. It makes you open your eyes, look around and see how blessed you are. Being a CASA volunteer has affected me because it made me realize how lucky I am” HF
 
 "Being A CASA volunteer has made my life more fulfilling, retirement more fulfilling. I’m realistic, I’m not going to change the world but I am an element for positive change. The work here is important and relevant; there are a lot of kids who need our help. We are an independent eye on the case, with no agenda except the safety and well-being of the child” JC
 
 "Many cases have turns; it can be a wake up call to parents. I have seen some parents make a real effort and some accept the fact that they cannot be parents. I think it’s amazing that family members will step up and take care of the child or children in need. I became a volunteer because something needs to be done, it is frustrating. I’m not always sure where the child will end up but the alternative may not always be the greatest.” JT
