Mission Statement

The National CASA/GAL Association, together with state and local member programs, supports and promotes court-appointed volunteer advocacy so every child who has experienced abuse or neglect can be safe, have a permanent home, and the opportunity to thrive.

Description

The National CASA/GAL Association is a network of 1,000 program offices that are recruiting, training and supporting volunteers to represent the best interests of abused and neglected children in the courtroom and other settings. CASA/GAL volunteers are appointed by judges to watch over and advocate for abused and neglected children, to make sure they don't get lost in the overburdened legal and social service system or languish in inappropriate group or foster homes. Volunteers stay with each case until it is closed and the child is placed in a safe, permanent home. For many abused children, their CASA/GAL volunteer will be the one constant adult presence in their lives. Independent research has demonstrated that children with a CASA/GAL volunteer are substantially less likely to spend time in long-term foster care and less likely to reenter care. Our vision to provide a volunteer for each and every abused and neglected child who needs one.

I have not volunteered with this organization yet. It was a recommendation from sources at the local Social services. I'm very elated to give back and help the children, that does not have a voice. My time and days are very flexible. Thank you

I have been a CASA volunteer for over two years and I have seen first hand the difference these caring individuals make. The children we serve have been abused and neglected and they just need someone in their corner. These children are innocent victims and they need someone who can focus on them, mentor them, and make sure they are getting what they need. As a CASA you can improve the life of a child who needs it most! Being a CASA has been the most rewarding experience of my life!

CASA does a fantastic job of helping abused and neglected children and makes a difference in people's lives in a way that few organizations are able to do. The personnel and trainers are top notch and help volunteers to understand the legal, social and emotional issues that children are coping with, as well as how the volunteer can impact their lives in a powerful way. Supervision is excellent so that a volunteer always has a person to check in with to get help or clarity. I cannot recommend this organization more strongly. Gail G.
