About

CASA is committed to the protection and healing of abused and neglected children who have been placed in foster care and referred to us by the courts. The CASA program trains everyday citizens to become volunteer Guardian's ad Litem, or a GAL. The GAL becomes an officer of the court and it is their job to advocate for the best interest of the child during the child protection case. The Guardian ad Litem is often the ONLY consistent person for the child during their time in foster care and can make a huge impact on the child's wellbeing.

Judges in ADA County rely heavily on the information provided by Guardians when making critical decisions for children in foster care.
