CASA of Maricopa County
CASA of Maricopa County - Phoenix Metro Area
CASA of Maricopa County’s mission is to ensure that the best interests of an abused or neglected child are represented in court, so no child falls through the cracks. The program trains and empowers community volunteers to serve at the request of Maricopa County Juvenile Court Judges as advocates for children who have been abused, neglected, or abandoned by their parents.
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.
