What does a CASA volunteer do? A CASA volunteer does a lot of investigating, reading, sitting, waiting and writing. They ask a lot of questions and answer a lot as well. Sometimes there is no answer. They give their time without the need of a material reward. Their reward is lying in bed at night knowing that their CASA child is sleeping in a safe environment. Or finding out their CASA child was doing well in school. [ Read More ]
