National CASA is Transforming Lives
Nearly 700,000 children experience abuse or neglect each year. Instead of playing with neighbors and making happy family memories, they’re attending court hearings, adjusting to new foster homes and transitioning to new schools. That’s a heavy burden for a child to carry. With a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) or guardian ad litem (GAL) volunteer dedicated to their case, America’s most vulnerable children will have someone speaking up for their best interests. With your support, more children will have the opportunity to thrive in a safe and loving home.
Because the work our volunteers do is complex, we host an annual conference for the entire network to get inspired, learn from industry-leading speakers and share best practices. In March 2018, the conference will take place in Boston and more than 1,200 CASA/GAL staff and board members, volunteers, and child welfare experts will gather to improve our advocacy on behalf of America’s most vulnerable children.
