ABC15 is proud to support Voices for CASA Children located right here in the Valley.

In Maricopa County alone, there are over 13,000 abused and neglected children, which is enough to fill the ASU Wells Fargo Arena to capacity.

More than nine out of ten kids lack a Court Appointed Special Advocate to look out for their best interests.

That’s why CASA needs volunteers just like you to be the voices for these kids by meeting with foster parents, biological parents, doctors and teachers. Volunteers are essentially the eyes and ears of the judge who has to make serious decisions without a great deal of information.

Sometimes a CASA volunteer is the only constant in these kids’ lives as they go from foster home to group home to foster home.

As the number of children in state dependency continues to rise, your help is needed to ensure all children have a safe, loving and permanent home.
