Casa in the Community

Thousands of children in Arizona’s foster care system need a consistent, caring adult to speak up for them in court and in their community. Over 380 of these children are from Yavapai County and on Thursday, September 21, 2023, the public is invited to learn how they can help. CASA in the Community will be held at the Cottonwood Public Library in the Dede Ewald Room on September 21, 2023, at 11:00 a.m. This is a chance for community members to meet program staff and current advocates and learn more about how they can have a lifelong impact on children currently living in foster care in the community. Volunteers with the Court Appointed Special Advocates Program are everyday people appointed by a judge to review a case of abuse or neglect in Yavapai County. These volunteers meet with the children monthly and become a regular and trusted presence in their life. CASA volunteers report back to the judge in the case with vital information and remain involved until the court case ends.  Children with a CASA volunteer assigned to them are more likely to receive services and resources; and twice as likely to find a safe, and permanent home.
