Envision a bright future for every child

Envision a bright future for every child

Envision a bright future for every child. At CASA of Adams and Broomfield Counties that means serving every abused and neglected child in need.  

A Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) is a trained community volunteer appointed by a judge to advocate for abused and neglected children who have been placed into the child welfare system. Through their work, CASA volunteers help ensure that abused and neglected children are safe, receive needed mental and physical health services, keep their education on track, obtain needed lifeskills, and ultimately find a permanent home where they can thrive.  

In Adams and Broomfield Counties, there are 1,600 abused and neglected children in the child welfare system. Because of hundreds of amazing volunteers, CASA is able to serve more than 500 of those children.

With such a huge need, more volunteers are needed!

No special background or education is required to become a CASA volunteer. People of all ethnic and educational backgrounds and from all cultures and professions are encouraged to apply. Once accepted into the program, applicants receive necessary training in courtroom procedures, social services, the juvenile justice system, and the special needs of abused and neglected children.
