Our Mission

Summer camp,  music lessons, sports teams, academic tutoring are all experiences that create strong, resilient children. If you are a child in foster care those activities may never happen for you.  The state only pays for basics.

The Cape Fear Guardian ad Litem Association has changed that for children in New Hanover and Pender Counties.  Local foundations, businesses and many individual donors have contributed over $1 million to CFGALA in the last 19 years to "help a kid be a kid".  Every dollar goes directly to our children to fulfill the dreams they share with their very own court-appointed Guardian ad Litem.  With your support, those moments will create memories that will fuel a child's future.

News & Notes

The spooky season is coming to an end before we know it, but that doesn’t mean we’re over October. Scary doesn’t always have to be bad. Instead, use these final weeks as a reminder to do some scary-good deeds and give back to your community.

In order to lead a truly altruistic life, it’s important to take stock of your own mental health, as well as those around you. There are a ton of free resources and tactics you can use to check-in and improve your mental clarity.

It’s hard to believe that another month has come and gone. As we enter October and inch closer to the holiday season, year-end giving and volunteering also ramps up.

Promoting diversity, equity and inclusion in all that we do helps us develop a more informed and inclusive picture for different causes and issues at hand.
