A foster parent opens their home temporarily to a child or group of children in need of placement. CASA will gather information on how a child is doing in their foster home, and will interact with foster parents to gather information from them on the child’s wellbeing. Children do not live with their CASA volunteers, nor do they visit their volunteers’ homes.
Learn more about why CASA volunteers can’t be foster parents at the same time in our blog post, Avoiding Conflicts of Interest: Why CASA volunteers can’t be foster parents.
Find out why CASA makes for a great "prerequisite" to becoming a foster parent in our blog post, CASA: Your Foster Parenting Prerequisite.
