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.
