Imagine what it feels like to be a child in foster care.
They are waiting for a volunteer like you to help them find a permanent, forever home. There are many ways to get involved. While you’re here, learn more about us and our mission to help every child who has experienced abuse or neglect have the chance to thrive. Find out how you can become a volunteer or donate to the organization.
Court-appointed special advocate (CASA) and guardian ad litem (GAL) volunteers (what they’re called varies by location) make a life-changing difference for children who have experienced abuse or neglect.
Each volunteer is appointed by a judge to advocate for a child’s best interest in court. Our volunteers help judges develop a fuller picture of each child’s life. Their advocacy enables judges to make the most well-informed decision for each child.
CASA volunteers are ordinary citizens, like you, doing extraordinary work. CASA volunteers establish stable relationships with foster children, getting to know their unique history and making informed recommendations to the courts.
The CASA Volunteer
Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) serves abused and neglected children who have been removed from their homes and find themselves in the courts and child welfare system through no fault of their own.
Our volunteers are subjected to a rigorous background check and interview process. After extensive training and under the direction of the presiding judge, CASA volunteers participate as independent child advocates. The volunteer will formalize their observations and recommendations in written court reports to assist in the complex and difficult decision-making process directly affecting the child.
Being a CASA volunteer does not require any special education or background – just the desire to help an abused and neglected child find a safe , permanent home. Perhaps you would like to impact a child’s future and are interested in court appointed advocacy but need to know more. Please contact the CASA office to learn more.
Every year in Colorado more there are over 11,000 children removed from their home. Right now, CASA of the 7th Judicial District can only provide a CASA volunteer to about 40% of the children in our judicial district. Are you ready to be a caring, consistent adult presence during a scary and uncertain time?
