Coconino CASA for Kids, Inc.
Are you interested in becoming a CASA?
CASA volunteers are appointed by judges to watch over and advocate for abused and neglected children. Volunteers stay with each case until it is closed and the child is placed in a safe, permanent home. For many abused children, their CASA volunteer will be the one constant adult presence in their lives.
Independent research has demonstrated that children with a CASA volunteer are substantially less likely to spend time in long-term foster care and less likely to reenter care.
Please visit CASA of Coconino County online to see whether this volunteer opportunity is for you! It will be the most rewarding "click" you've ever made. We are truly blessed to receive funding from the Arizona Community Foundation of Flagstaff. Founded in 1987, the Arizona Community Foundation of Flagstaff secures, manages and allocates donor gifts for charitable purposes in northern Arizona, working to improve the quality of life for all residents.

There are an unbelievable 17,000 children in Arizona’s foster care system. What these children need most is a safe and loving home. They also need to have someone who cares about them and who they can count on. Being a foster parent is tough but the rewards are many. Are you ready?

Coconino CASA for Kids is now a Qualifying Charitable Organization!
What does this mean? The state of Arizona offers its taxpayers the opportunity to make contributions to non-profit organizations that reduce the amount of tax owed to the state or increase the amount of the taxpayer’s refund, dollar-for-dollar! There is NO NET COST to the donor, and deserving organizations and individuals around the state benefit. In order to receive the dollar-for-dollar tax credit, you must have a tax liability for at least the amount of your donation. Click here for more information about Arizona's Tax Credit. We are working on a quick and easy way for you to designate your donation as a tax credit donation. In the meantime, when you choose to donate online via our donate tab, add a note in the second address line if you'd like your donation to be considered a tax credit donation.
