Boston CASA
Supporting and advocating for the
best interests of foster children and youth.

Our Work

Since 1982, the Boston CASA Program has made a difference in the lives of abused and neglected children in our community.

Boston CASA’s (Court Appointed Special Advocates) mission is to ensure a safe and permanent home for court-involved children in Suffolk and Middlesex County who have experienced abuse and neglect.

We fulfill our mission by recruiting, training and supervising community volunteers to serve as Court Appointed Special Advocates (“CASAs”) who work to ensure that these children have safe and permanent homes.

To help to support our program, please learn about volunteer opportunities or make a donation to help protect children today.


EVERY child deserves an adult who NEVER gives up on them and will demand that they receive every opportunity to reach their fullest potential. That is what CASAs do and what your support will make happen! Your gift will help CASA transform the lives of 300 children in 2019!


We were awarded a grant from the National CASA/GAL Association for Children! Learn more here…
