About

A CASA advocate can change the trajectory of a foster baby's life by focusing on that one individual child’s needs while living in foster care. Volunteer court appointed special advocates are assigned to a case by a juvenile judge to gather information from various files and reports and communicate with social workers, doctors, family members and other professionals in the baby's life.

Advocates use this information along with firsthand observations while spending time with the child to advocate for the baby's best interests in a court setting, as well as in other aspects of their life, such as medical and developmental needs, and living arrangements. No prior experience is necessary. CASA of Maricopa County provides all the training you’ll need, as well as a Coordinator team to support you on your case. In just 10-15 hours a month, you can make a difference in the life of a foster child!

Please say yes and apply today to become an advocate for a baby in need at www.MaricopaCASA.org.
