CASA volunteers often times become the one consistent and committed adult in the child’s life. When children experience multiple foster home placements, changes in schools, change of social workers, it’s the CASA volunteer who remains the constant in the child’s life.   Because CASA volunteers are only assigned to one child or a sibling group, they are able to develop meaningful relationships with the child (ren), and get to know the child (ren).  CASA volunteers get to spend quality time with the children because they do not have a caseload.  CASA volunteers are there to listen to the child talk about their fears, concerns, or aspirations and wishes. CASA volunteers encourage the child (ren) to express their hopes and dreams.  By remaining objective observers, CASA volunteers allow children to trust that, in a time of trouble, there will be a committed adult who is there for them.
