ORGANIZATION: CASA of Maricopa County - Phoenix Metro Area

CASA Children of Maricopa County

The CASA of Maricopa County program mobilizes court appointed volunteers to provide critical advocacy for child victims of life-threatening abuse, neglect or abandonment. This best-interest advocacy opportunity within Maricopa County's juvenile court is a shining example of how ordinary individuals can make an extraordinary impact in the lives of children living in foster care.

Each volunteer is appointed by a judge to guide one child or one set of siblings through the system to safe, permanent homes as quickly as possible. CASA volunteers research records and monitor the progress of the child and family throughout a dependency case and advocate for the child’s current and future needs in court, in school, and in agency meetings. A CASA volunteer’s independent evaluation allows the court to make better informed decisions.

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.
