About

Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Maricopa County is actively seeking Spanish-speaking volunteers to speak up for abused and neglected kids in foster care. Applicants need not be native speakers, but able to effectively communicate in both Spanish and English.

¿Qué es CASA?

Cuando un niño ingresa al sistema de cuidados temporales del estado porque su hogar ya no es seguro debido a abuso o negligencia, el juez puede nombrar a un voluntario para que defienda en la corte y otros contextos, los mejores intereses del niño o joven. A ese voluntario se le llama defensor especial o CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate, por sus siglas en inglés).
