How many cases does a CASA carry and how much time does it require?

Volunteers generally have only one case at a time and spend an average of 10 hours a month on their case. The beginning of a case is typically more “court heavy” and may require additional hours. Moving forward in a case, the bulk of the volunteer time is spent visiting with the child, phone calls with various individuals knowledgeable about the child, and occasional Child Protection Services meetings and court hearings.
