Resources for CASA/GAL Program Board Members

Across the country, more than half (57%) of our CASA/GAL programs are private, non-profit organizations governed by a local board of directors. Board members play a key role but often do not have access to information that can enhance and inform their work. We hope to change that by providing resources that will help build a strong foundation to support your program’s volunteer advocacy for the abused and neglected children in your community.

Resources in this section:

Along with the resources on this website, you also have a support network that includes both state and National CASA Association. Working together, we can ensure that every child has a CASA/GAL volunteer advocating for their best interests. Thank you for volunteering your time and talents to an organization that stands up for the needs and rights of abused and neglected children.
