Celebrating Family Reunification: a message from our CEO
One of National CASA’s guiding principles or best practices for its member network of 948 state organizations and local programs recognizes the importance of family preservation and/or reunification. In guiding principle 2 of the 2020 National CASA/GAL Standards for Local Programs, it states:
— it is in a child’s best interests to remain with their family of origin when safely possible;
— the program acknowledges that children experience trauma when separated from their family of origin; and
— if a child is removed from their family of origin, it is in the child’s best interests to be reunified with their family of origin as soon as safely possible.
