CASA of Maricopa County
Being a CASA volunteer is not your typical volunteer experience. But that’s okay… the Maricopa County Juvenile Court is not looking for typical volunteers.
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. Because CASA volunteers serve on one case at a time, they truly get to know each child and can give each case the sustained, personal attention it deserves.
We invite you to join our family of volunteers and make a difference in a child’s life – and your own.
