What Do CASA Volunteers do?

CASA Volunteers work both in and out of the courtroom. They build relationships with the children, family members, and foster caregivers. They work in concert with the judges, lawyers, social workers, service providers, parents, and teachers. 

The CASA is appointed as an officer of the court and is responsible for making recommendations to the judge regarding the future permanent placement of each child. The CASA volunteer submits written and verbal recommendations to the court that assist the court in decision making.

CASA volunteers come from all walks of life, with a variety of educational and ethnic backgrounds. There are more than 62,000 CASA volunteers nationally and more than 60 are active annually in the First Judicial District (Santa Fe, Los Alamos and Rio Arriba counties). Aside from their CASA volunteer responsibility, many are employed in regular full-time jobs.
