About

ENVISION a bright future for every local child. CASA is a volunteer-based, nonprofit organization that trains and supervises community volunteers to represent the best interests of our most vulnerable citizens - child victims of physical, sexual or emotional abuse and neglect.

Volunteer CASA Advocates are appointed by judges to be a voice for these children in court and look out for their best interests. The desired result is that children are placed into safe, loving homes where they can thrive.

Volunteer Advocates ensure that the Judge receives up-to-date, pertinent information so important decisions may be made regarding the child's educational and health related needs including recommendations related to therapy, visitation, and ultimately permanency. Each Volunteer Advocate is vital in determining a safe and permanent home for the child.

Those who are interested in making a real impact in the life of a child can contact Carly Wooldridge, CASA’s Outreach and Recruitment Coordinator, at (303) 655-3924 or at carly@casa17th.com.
