Mission Statement

The mission of CASA of Adams and Broomfield Counties is to provide specially selected and trained community volunteers, CASAs, to advocate for abused and neglected children in the pursuit of safe and permanent homes.

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.

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.
