Court Appointed Special Advocates for Children in Washington State: A Review of Effectiveness

Open Publication PDF

Lucy Berliner, Monica Fitzgerald - November 1998

The 1997 session of the Washington State Legislature funded an evaluation of court-appointed special advocates/guardians ad litem (CASA/GALs).  Volunteer CASA advocates operate in 22 of the state's 32 court jurisdictions, investigating and representing the dependent child's perspective in family court.  This evaluation determines the effectiveness of the CASA/GAL program in improving outcomes for dependent children, and examines cost-effectiveness.
