CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) of Adams and Broomfield Counties works to make sure that every child who cannot live safely at home has a caring, compassionate CASA Volunteer Advocate who will help fight for their right to be safe, ensure that they are treated with dignity, and assure their safe passage out of foster care, building a stronger community for all.
CASA Volunteer Advocates come from every walk of life and share a commitment to improving children's lives. After being sworn-in by a judge, Volunteer Advocates are appointed to a child or family of children and spend an average of 15-20 hours a month advocating for these children. They get to know the child while also gathering information from the child's family, teachers, doctors, care-givers and anyone else involved in the child's life. Judges highly value CASA Volunteer Advocate's recommendations which help them make informed decisions in the child's best interest.
Each year, in Adams and Broomfield Counties, there are over 1,100 children who have been physically, sexually or emotionally abused or neglected, and who are in desperate need of a caring, committed CASA Volunteer Advocate to speak up for their best interests. It is our hope that each one of these children can have a CASA Volunteer Advocate to represent their best interest.
