CASA of Jefferson and Gilpin Counties

  • 9 people are interested

CASA is central to fulfilling society’s most fundamental obligation by making sure a qualified, compassionate adult will fight for and protect a child’s right to be safe, to be treated with dignity and respect, and to learn and grow in the security of a loving family.

This volunteer is a Court Appointed Special Advocate, a "CASA volunteer." Someone specially trained to know what is in a child’s best interest, and how to get those interests met. Who knows how to help a child through this time of great vulnerability. A deeply committed adult. A person who will fight for this child, against all odds, against power, against bureaucracy and shortsighted agendas. Fight until that child understands that he has a right to believe in himself. Fight, until she can understand and advocate for her own inalienable rights. To live a life of destiny, rather than fate.
