MaxFun is working with National CASA/GAL to provide ongoing support for their organization. Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) and guardian ad litem (GAL) volunteers make a life-changing difference for children navigating the court and foster care systems. This series highlights folks from our own community who already work with this amazing nonprofit.
In this first interview, CASA Volunteer Craig Groff-Folsom chats with MaxFun’s April Pendergraft and Stacey Molski about his experience volunteering with this great organization. Craig is finishing up his fourth case at the moment. He talks with us about how he first got involved with National CASA/GAL through working at the organization’s special events, how he fits in being a CASA volunteer with his full-time job, the challenges of being a CASA volunteer, and the effect volunteers have on the lives of children who are paired with volunteers.
