The National CASA Association is a national organization with nearly 1000 programs across the country. We do not have supervisory authority over local or state CASA/GAL programs, individual volunteers, or local courts. At the national level, our mission is to provide support, training and technical assistance to local CASA programs. If you have a concern involving a local or state program or a child in care, we advise contacting the staff of the local CASA/GAL program or officials in your local court system. All legal issues surrounding individual cases fall under the jurisdiction of the local court and the state, and the National CASA Association does not have the power or the standing to intervene in individual cases.
