Thank you for your interest in CASA of Middlesex County! We are a nonprofit dedicated to standing up for the needs of children living in foster care. We advocate for kids through the hard work of volunteers who are assigned to a child or sibling group. 

Child with Braces Volunteers are trained extensively and provided with guidance throughout their volunteer service. The volunteers get to know the children, investigate their circumstances, and report back to the judge about what the kids need. CASA volunteers in Middlesex County have helped children receive the therapeutic services they need to overcome their adverse circumstances and medical attention that would have otherwise been overlooked; they have recommended services for parents to complete so families can be reunified quickly and permanently. CASA volunteers have also helped children living in long-term foster care placements find permanent homes, saving the children years of instability, and the government countless dollars.

Children with a CASA volunteer spend on average 7.5 months less in foster care than their peers who don’t have a CASA. They also have improved educational performance and are less likely to return to foster care once they leave it.

Many Children

In 2014, CASA of Middlesex County served 99 children, which is only a fraction of the nearly 750 children in Middlesex County who are in foster care who need someone looking out for them. We are constantly growing, and striving to meet the immense need of children in our county, but it takes the support of the whole community to serve the needs of these children. Please look around our website to see how you might be able to help. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
