Project Details
You could volunteer for any number of organizations that help children, but CASA is something special. Unlike any other volunteer opportunity, CASA empowers people like you to serve as officers of the court and work with and on behalf of a foster child. You can make a difference in the life of a child and stop the cycle of abuse and neglect for generations to come. Contact us today for more information.

Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Maricopa County is actively seeking, bilingual, Spanish-speaking volunteers to speak up for abused and neglected kids in foster care. Applicants need not be native speakers, but able to effectively communicate in both Spanish and English.

?Qu? es CASA?

Cuando un ni?o ingresa al sistema de cuidados temporales del estado porque su hogar ya no es seguro debido a abuso o negligencia, el juez puede nombrar a un voluntario para que defienda en la corte y otros contextos, los mejores intereses del ni?o o joven. A ese voluntario se le llama defensor especial o CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate, por sus siglas en ingl?s).
