You could volunteer for any number of organizations that help children, but CASA is something special. Unlike any other volunteer opportunity, CASA empowers people like you to serve as officers of the court and work with and on behalf of a foster child. You can make a difference in the life of a child and stop the cycle of abuse and neglect for generations to come. Contact us today for more information.

Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Maricopa County is actively seeking, bilingual, 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.

?Qu? es CASA?

Cuando un ni?o 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 ni?o o joven. A ese voluntario se le llama defensor especial o CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate, por sus siglas en ingl?s).

Mission Statement

CASA of Maricopa County’s mission is to ensure that the best interests of an abused or neglected child are represented in court, so no child falls through the cracks. The program trains and empowers community volunteers to serve at the request of Maricopa County Juvenile Court Judges as advocates for children who have been abused, neglected, or abandoned by their parents.

Description

CASA of Maricopa County - Phoenix Metro Area

The Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) program is the only agency authorized to advocate for the best interests of child victims in Arizona. CASA volunteers hold to the belief that there are no hopeless children, only children who have yet to experience hope.

Who Becomes a CASA Volunteer?
CASA volunteers are everyday people just like you. They are realtors, school principals, pilots, web designers, plumbers, small business owners, retirees and stay-at-home moms and dads and vary in age from 21 to 83.

No special skills or degrees are required, only the desire to make a difference in an abused child's life. You must be at least 21 years of age, participate in our comprehensive screening process and training program, and make a 15-20 hour monthly commitment in order to ensure stability for the children we serve.

The only special background you should have is the heart to care for the most vulnerable children in our community, and the determination to do something about their current situation.
