Part of a national organization and one of 15 local programs in the state of Arizona, the CASA of Maricopa County program supports court-appointed volunteers to provide critical advocacy for children in foster care due to 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 on the lives of children.
CASA volunteers research records and monitor the progress of the children and family throughout a dependency case and advocate for the children’s current and future needs in court, school, and agency meetings. A CASA volunteer’s independent evaluation allows the court to make better-informed decisions.
Applying to become a CASA volunteer is an opportunity to make a significant impact in the lives of children in an overburdened child welfare system. Potential volunteers must meet certain requirements and undergo a thorough application process to ensure they are well-suited for this important role. The first step in making a difference starts when you submit your application.
