Mission Statement

Vision All Children dream, thrive and grow with a sense of belonging and empowerment to build a successful future. Mission Speaking up for abused and neglected children through Court Appointed Special Advocates, CASA volunteers.

Description

Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASAs) are trained volunteers from the community who speak up for the best interests of children in the courtroom. Children helped by CASA volunteers include those for whom home placement is being determined in the Dependency and Neglect Court filings. Most of the children are victims of abuse and neglect.

CASA volunteers are appointed to a case by a judge and the volunteer’s goal is to provide a carefully researched background of the child, as well as information based on an investigation of the child’s current needs, to help the Court make a sound decision about the child’s future.

CASAs must be 21 years or older, and willing to commit 10 hours of their time each month for the duration of a case (12-18 months). Volunteers must attend 32 hours of training in order to be sworn in by the court to serve as a CASA. Please contact us at (303) 695-1882 for more information or any questions you might have. This volunteer opportunity is available in Arapahoe, Douglas, Elbert, and Lincoln Counties.
