The St. Louis Cardinals baseball team honored the National CASA/GAL network on Monday, June 12, in recognition of the organization’s mission and work. The National CASA/GAL Board of Trustees was featured on the park’s jumbotron along with the team mascot, and Board Chair Jim Rishwain threw out the ceremonial first pitch of the game (a strike!). More than 400 attendees of the 2023 Annual Conference attended the game following the Walk Run Thrive event held during the conference.
Court Appointed Special Advocates® (CASAs) are community volunteers, just like you, who speak up for abused and/or neglected children.
Our CASA program belongs to a network of nearly 950 community-based programs that recruit, train and support citizen-volunteers to advocate for the best interests of abused and/or neglected children in courtrooms and communities.
