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, Court-Appointed Special Advocates, is a national 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization. CASA of Adams and Broomfield Counties recruits and trains community volunteers to become CASA Advocates for abused and neglected children with open dependency and neglect cases in the 17th judicial district. 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.Just in Adams and Broomfield Counties, there are over 1,100 children that need a loving and caring CASA.

CASA Advocates complete an application, interview, background check, and 30 hours of pre-service training. After being sworn-in by a judge, CASA Advocates are appointed to a child or family of children and spend an average of 10-15 hours a month advocating for these children. They spend time with the child(ren) while simultaneously gathering information about their physical, emotional, social, and educational well-being, and make recommendations to the court on how to best support the child in these areas.
