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.
