Diversity and Inclusion
Diversity is being invited to the party. Inclusion is being asked to dance.

Building on our legacy of quality advocacy, we acknowledge the need to understand, respect, and celebrate diversity including race, gender, religion, national origin, ethnicity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, and the presence of sensory, mental, or physical disability. We also value diversity of viewpoints, life experiences, talents and ideas.
A diverse CASA/GAL network helps us to better understand and promote the well-being of the children we serve. Embracing diversity makes us better advocates by providing fresh ideas and perspectives for problem solving in our multicultural world, enabling us to respond to each child’s unique needs.
