I am for the child campaign
The National CASA Program recently launched their I Am for the Child campaign. This is an opportunity for all members of the CASA/GAL network to work smarter and more collaboratively, to create a national movement and reach our goal of serving every child.
Last year, 75,000 CASA and guardian ad litem (GAL) volunteers helped 240,000 abused and neglected children find safe, permanent homes. Although, with more than 400,000 children in foster care each year, that leaves about half that are still in need of a CASA volunteer.
