National CASA/GAL celebrates Black leaders in child welfare

As we rounded out Black History Month, we honored Black leaders in child welfare and former Chairs of the National CASA/GAL Board of Trustees:

Dr. William C. Bell is the President and Chief Executive Officer of Casey Family Programs and a former National CASA/GAL Board Chair. Dr. Bell has spent a highly-decorated career advocating for change in the child welfare system. Using a racial equity lens to examine ways we can reduce the number of children in foster care, Dr. Bell’s current work focuses on finding the threads communities can weave together to offer a safety net of services that will help families become more resilient.
