When the court is making decisions that will affect a child’s future, the child needs and deserves a spokesperson—an objective adult to provide independent information about the child’s best interests. While other parties in the case are concerned about the child, they also represent other interests. The CASA advocate is the only person in the case whose sole concern is the best interest of the child. CASA advocates are assigned one case at a time—one CASA advocate per each child (or sibling group) to provide that child with a “voice in court.” Additionally, the CASA advocate develops a relationship with the child built upon trust and consistently. The CASA advocate often becomes the one person in life who the foster child feels he or she can rely upon.
