Director of Operations — Voices for CASA Children (Scottsdale, AZ)

Date Posted: March 26, 2019
Position Description:

Organization Overview: Voices for CASA Children is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that works to support the nearly 9,000 abused and neglected children in the Maricopa county foster care system through the Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) Program. In everything we do, we believe in giving every lost and voiceless child a brighter future.

We do this by recruiting, training and supporting CASA volunteers. By creating opportunities that help every child know that they are cared for and safe. And by engaging the community to help drive awareness about the plight of Arizona's abused and neglected children.

CASA Volunteers work with members of a child's care team, the courts, and community resources to identify and advocate for a child's best interests. A CASA volunteer acts as the eyes and ears of the juvenile court judge and works to move the child to permanency. Because the CASA volunteer acts as a consistent presence in the child's life, children with a CASA volunteer do better in school, spend less time in foster care, and are less likely to re-enter foster care.

Our office is located at Miller Rd/Indian School in Scottsdale, AZ.
