- Volunteer Opportunity posted by CASA of Maricopa County
3131 West Durango Street
Did you have a significant male role model while you were growing up? Have you been that role model for someone in your community? Young men in foster care need that same mentorship in addition to advocacy as they navigate their place in the dependency process. Advocate for a child in foster care. Be 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.
