CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) of Adams & Broomfield Counties was founded in 2000, working to make sure that every child who cannot live safely at home has a caring, compassionate CASA Volunteer Advocate helping fight for their right to be safe, ensure they are treated with dignity and assure their safe passage out of foster care – building a stronger community for all.
Volunteer Advocates Committed to Improving Children’s Lives
CASA Volunteer Advocates come from every walk of life and share a commitment to improving children’s lives.
After being sworn-in by a judge, volunteer advocates are appointed to a child or family of children, spending an average of 15–20 hours a month advocating for these children. They get to know the child while also gathering information from the child’s family, teachers, doctors, care-givers and anyone else involved in the child’s life. Judges highly value CASA Volunteer Advocates’ recommendations to help the judges make informed decisions in the child’s best interest.
Each year in Adams and Broomfield Counties, there are more than 1,000 children physically, sexually or emotionally abused or neglected who desperately need a caring, committed CASA Volunteer Advocate to speak up for their best interests.
It is our hope that each one of these children can have a CASA Volunteer Advocate to represent their best interest.
New Envision Coalition
Our new Envision Coalition asks community members to “envision,” through the glasses seen in our picture above, a bright future for every local child. We seek members who will be AVID supporters of CASA: advocate for a child in need, volunteer their time at community events, invest in the organization to help envision a brighter future for every child or do something to share CASA’s vision with their communities and networks.
