Washington CASA Association is a network of 10 local programs in Washington state serving 12 counties. Through our valued membership with National CASA/GAL, we belong to a network of 950 community-based programs nationwide, that recruit, screen, train, and support court-appointed special advocate (CASA) and guardian ad litem (GAL) volunteers. Those advocates are volunteers, just like you, who stand up and speak out to help children experiencing abuse and neglect.
Local CASA/GAL Programs make a life changing difference for children and youth in Washington.
For a child who has experienced neglect or abuse, having a caring CASA Volunteer to advocate for them can make a life changing difference.
Children who have experienced abuse or neglect are involved with multiple systems—the court system, the child welfare system, the health care system, and the school system. CASA volunteers help connect the dots between these systems to ensure that information is shared, when appropriate, to get the best possible outcomes for children and youth.
During the school year CASA volunteers advocate for children to ensure they have access to the educational resources needed.
If you would like to support the children, youth and families, learn how you can become a CASA/GAL volunteer here.
Court Appointed Special Advocate® (CASA) and guardian ad litem (GAL) volunteers advocate on behalf of children who have experienced abuse or neglect. Their best-interest advocacy helps ensure that children are safe, have a permanent home and have the opportunity to thrive.
Fundraisers, events and pre-service training help us raise awareness and generate crucial resources in support of children experiencing abuse and neglect. Join us at our next event and see how you can get involved.
