CASA of Maricopa County - Phoenix Metro Area

Maricopa County CASA

As parents you advocate for your children to receive the best education and the best medical care. You partner with teachers, coaches, physicians, and other parents to make sure your child thrives in a safe and loving environment. Children in foster care need an experienced adult to advocate for those very same needs. They need a CASA.

A Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) is an everyday citizen appointed by a judge to advocate for the safety and well-being of children who have been removed from their homes. No prior experience is necessary. We provide all the training you’ll need, along with a team to support you on your case. Your role will be to gather information from reports, social workers, doctors, family members and other professionals in the child's life. With the information you collect, you’ll represent the child’s best interest in court. A child with a CASA is more likely to receive targeted services and spend less time in out of home care.
