The Friends of the Wake County Guardian ad Litem Program is a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit founded in 1991 to change the lives of abused and neglected children by supporting the work of Guardians ad Litem who volunteer as Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) for foster children. 

We accomplish our work by providing enrichment opportunity funds and needed items for impoverished children including ones in foster care, out-of-home kinship placements, families working hard to break the cycle of poverty and youth who have aged out of foster care.

Background on Guardians ad Litem Program. In 1983, the North Carolina General Assembly established the Office of Guardian ad Litem (GAL) Services as a division of the North Carolina Administrative Office of the Courts. Pursuant to G.S. 7B-601, when a petition alleging abuse or neglect of a juvenile is filed in district court, the judge appoints a volunteer Guardian ad Litem advocate and an attorney advocate to provide team representation to the child. All Guardian ad Litem advocates are trained, supervised, and supported by program staff in each county of the state. To learn more, visit the websites for Wake GAL and NC Courts GAL.
