A CASA is an official part of judicial proceedings, working alongside attorneys and foster care case managers. By handling only one case at a time the CASA has time to thoroughly explore the history of each assigned case. The CASA role is comprised of advocating, investigating, facilitating, and monitoring. This is accomplished by talking to the child, parents, family members, neighbors, school officials, doctors and others involved in the child's life or family's life at one time or another who might have facts about the case. The volunteer reviews all court facts and documents pertaining to the case. The CASA helps to facilitate a collaborative relationship between all parties on the case. He/she submits written reports including recommendations as to the best interest of the child/children to the Judge at every scheduled hearing. The CASA continues involvement with the child/children in the case to assure that the judicial and child welfare systems are moving ahead to secure a safe, permanent home for the child/children and that court-ordered services are provided to them and the family. Each volunteer assigned to a case is supervised by one of the program's staff to assure consistency in volunteer activities and as a resource and guide in the complexity of child welfare proceedings.
