**Please note this is a VIRTUAL informational session. Location has been specified as CASA Volunteers must be local to Adams and Broomfield Counties, or at least nearby to those counties.**

CASA of Adams & Broomfield Counties is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with a mission to provide volunteer advocacy and support for at-risk children and youth, empowering families to thrive. CASA Volunteers are trained to advocate for children who have experienced abuse and neglect, as well as for children who are chronically absent from school.

CASA Volunteers ensure that the child's physical, mental, and emotional needs are being met, and that they have the opportunity to thrive in a safe and permanent home. For kids struggling in school, CASA Volunteers work to identify barriers to attendance, access community resources, and improve the student’s attendance and academic success.

Children with a CASA Volunteer are more likely to find a safe, permanent home, more likely to succeed in school, and half as likely to re-enter the foster care system.

At a CASA 101 session, you will hear from members of the CASA team about the important work our advocates are doing in the community. You will learn about our volunteer opportunities and associated responsibilities, the application and training process, time commitment, and next steps on how you can get involved. Please note that in order to become a CASA Volunteer, you must be 21+ years of age, must complete several background checks and fingerprinting, and must have lived in the United States for the past 7 years.

This virtual CASA 101 will take place on Tuesday, June 11th from 6:00-7:00 PM via Zoom!

If you are interested in attending, please contact Paige Otto, Community Engagement Manager, at paige@casa17th.com for registration information. For more information, please visit CASA17th.org.

About CASA of Adams and Broomfield Counties

Location:

Adams County Human Services Center, 11860 Pecos Street, Suite 2700, Westminster, CO 80234, US

Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide court-appointed volunteer advocacy for children and youth from the child welfare system so every child can be safe, have a permanent home, and the opportunity to thrive.

Description

CASA of Adams & Broomfield Counties was incorporated in 1999 and serves the 17th Judicial District of Colorado. We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and part of The National CASA Association for Children, which supports a network of 950 CASA Programs in 49 states and the District of Columbia.

We recruit, train, and supervise community volunteers, Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA’s), to advocate in court for children who have experienced abuse and neglect.

CASA’s partnership with the U.S. Judicial System is a unique and necessary merging of the public and private sphere, providing children with one of the most valuable resources we can give during their time in the court system - a stable, consistent adult who cares.

CASA Advocates are supervised by CASA team members and work alongside the child's legal and professional team. CASA Advocates ensure that the child's physical, mental, and emotional needs are being met, and advocate for the child in court, all so that they may have a safe and permanent home.

CASA of Adams & Broomfield Counties serves 500 children each year, and is always looking for more caring volunteers to join our program and support children in need in our community.
