Most citizens do not know what goes on behind the closed doors of the juvenile and family courts of this nation—but CASA/GAL volunteers do. They see the pain and trauma of the child first-hand. They understand the law and the court process. They guide the child through the labyrinth and give the child comfort during a traumatic time. The CASA/GAL volunteer appears in court… to hold the system accountable to the best interest of each child.
