A new advocate is assigned a single case. That case may include one child or a sibling group. If an advocate chooses a case with a sibling group, he/she will provide advocacy services for all children on the case.
Some of our seasoned advocates like to take on two cases at a time. It is important for a CASA to have some experience under his/her belt before deciding to take a second simultaneously. This decision is considered seriously with the CASA and their supervisor. In that instance, a CASA may be serving two cases/families with multiple children in each.
Overall, the majority of our advocates serve one case/family at a time, and the number of children will vary based on the family size.
