Mission Statement

CASA of the Continental Divide's court-appointed trained volunteers advocate in court for the best interest of children who are victims of abuse and neglect in the 5 th Judicial District of Colorado in order to find them safe and permanent homes as soon as possible.

Description

Every year more than half a million abused and neglected children are in need of safe, permanent, nurturing homes. That's where CASA steps in. CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) was created in 1977 to make sure the abuse and neglect these children originally suffered at home doesn't continue as abuse and neglect at the hands of the system. As trained advocates, CASA volunteers are appointed by judges to be a voice for these children in court. The result is that a child is placed into a safe, loving home where he/she can thrive. It is the CASA vision to provide a volunteer for each and every abused and neglected child who needs one
