Key Components of the CASA/GAL Volunteer Role

Information Gathering

Carry out an objective examination of the situation including relevant history, environment, relationships and needs of the child.

Facilitation

Based on the information gathering process, identify appropriate resources and services for the child and family. In collaboration with your CASA supervisor, follow the referral procedure to initiate services. Coordinate with the services organization to expedite service delivery and move the case forward.

Advocacy

Speak up for the child by making fact-based recommendations regarding the child’s best interest in a written court report.

Monitoring

Track the orders of the court and plans of the child protective agency regarding fulfillment of treatment and services plans for all parties. If parties fail to carry out plans, inform the court in collaboration with the child protective services agency.
