There are over 10,000 abused and neglected children in Maricopa County alone. These at risk children would fill to capacity the ASU Wells Fargo Arena. Thankfully, 5% of these children have a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) to look out for their best interests and to remain with them for as long as it takes to find a safe, permanent home. More children need the expertise and care of a CASA. Learn more about Voices and what having a Court Appointed Special Advocate means to an abused or neglected child. Read More about What is a CASA?

Voices for CASA Children Believes

Every abused and neglected child in state care deserves:

​ 



GOAL:
ONE CASA FOR EVERY CHILD



  • A safe and permanent home.
  • An advocate working in that child's best interest.

Maricopa County CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) programThe CASA program recruits, trains and supports new CASAs, but they cannot meet the demand. Currently they are serving approximately 5 percent of abused and neglected children in state care. Visit superiorcourt.maricopa.gov/casa to learn more.


Voices for CASA Children raises funds so the CASA of Maricopa County program can recruit, train and support more volunteer advocates and educate our community about the importance of CASA. Read More about What is a CASA
