All you need is a little bit of training in how best to be an advocate for these children, and the willingness to make an 18-month commitment to the program.

Here are some frequently asked questions.

What is a volunteer advocate?

How does a volunteer advocate differ from a caseworker with the Department of Family Services?

Caseworkers are employed by state governments. They work on as many as 30 cases at a time and are frequently unable to conduct a comprehensive investigation of each. The CASA worker is a volunteer with more time and a smaller caseload (an average of 1-2 cases at a time). The CASA volunteer does not replace a caseworker on a case; he or she is an independent appointee of the court. The CASA volunteer examines a child’s case thoroughly, knows about available community resources, and makes a recommendation to the court, independent of state agency restrictions.

How does a volunteer advocate differ from an attorney?

The volunteer advocate does not provide legal representation in the courtroom; that is the role of the attorney. A volunteer advocate speaks specifically to what is in the best interests of the child and provides crucial background information that assists attorneys in presenting their cases.

Are Advocates compensated?

Advocates are volunteers and are not monetarily compensated.
