Organization Information

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.

This was a well organized event and it felt really great to step in to help CASA’s cause. The director and other employees were so nice and together the packaging was completed well under the estimated time. I would most definitely volunteer again.
