I have been a CASA volunteer for 14 years. The training is excellent and the supervision extremely helpful. I've had five cases, with a total of 12 children ranging in age from 1 to 21. Sometimes the parents had custody of their kids but were under supervision for past neglect. In others, the children were with relatives, group homes or foster families. In most cases, the CASA is the one constant in the child's life. Social workers, lawyers, and even judges change, but the CASA sticks with the kids. I find that judges rely very heavily on the CASA's to provide the information needed to make life changing custody decisions. It's a very gratifying experience.
