Arizona's foster children need you help! In Arizona approximately 8,737 children are in foster care because they cannot safely live with their families. Court Appointed Advocates (CASAs) are the only volunteers that are appointed by a judge and empowered to speak up for an abused or neglected child in court. Imagine what it would be like to lose your parents, not because of something you did, but because they can't - or won't - take care of you. Now, into your life come dozens of strangers:.. police, foster parents, social workers, judges, lawyers, and more. Having a CASA by your side means a trained and committed adult appointed by a judge to watch over and advocate for your best interests. You can be an everyday hero by simply having a commitment to children's rights, a sense of social responsibility, effective oral and written communications skills, and the ability to work with people of diverse backgrounds. As a CASA volunteer, you can help ensure they'll havea a safe, permanent home where they can thrive. Call 602-452-3407 or visit www.azcasa.org today!VIEW MORE »VIEW LESS »
