Ideally, the CASA advocate remains with the child until his or her case is closed. We ask volunteers to make a minimum two year commitment. One of the primary benefits for a child with a CASA is having a consistent adult presence in the child’s life—sometimes the only consistent, stable adult presence. CASA advocates often become the storyteller of the child’s life in foster care due to the high turnover of others in their lives (i.e., case workers, lawyers, foster parents, etc.).
