Michael Piraino on Fostering Reunification

Every year between Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, celebrations are held in court jurisdictions across the country to celebrate reunification and to highlight services available to families with children placed outside the home.

The mission of the National CASA Association is to advocate for the safety and well-being of children who have been removed from their homes due to parental abuse and neglect. Our goal with every case is for a CASA/GAL volunteer to stay paired with a child in care until that child is placed in a safe, permanent home. Whenever possible, our goal, as well as the goal of child welfare systems across the country, is to reunite children with their families. Michael Piraino recently wrote about the importance of reunification and about recognizing the efforts of those parents who are able to put their lives back on track and reunite their families.
