VOICES FOR CASA CHILDREN:
There are 12,000 abused and neglected children in Maricopa County - enough to nearly fill the ASU Wells Fargo Arena.
More than nine out of ten of these children lack a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA volunteer) to look out for their best interests. Together, we can give them a brighter future.
Our team is dedicated to ensuring that CASA of Maricopa County has the capacity to recruit, train and retain CASA volunteers.
We create focused programs designed to lessen the overwhelming impact that comes with being placed in the foster care system.
We bring awareness to the community of the broader challenges facing Arizona’s children and the role of the Court Appointed Special Advocate.
The Arians Family Foundation motto is “A Voice For Children” by supporting and developing programs which strives to prevent and ameliorate the abuse and neglect of children. The Arians Family Foundation supports CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) in making sure that children who are involved in the Court system, as a result of abuse or neglect by their families, receive the love and help they need.
