About Court Appointed Special Advocates:

Founded in 1977, the National Court Appointed Special Advocate/Guardian Ad Litem (CASA/GAL) Association for Children, 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. Each volunteer is appointed by a judge to advocate for a child’s best interest in court. Volunteers help judges develop a fuller picture of each child’s life, and their advocacy enables judges to make the most well-informed decision for each child. Learn more at casaforchildren.org.
