Northwest Rocky Mountain CASA
Court Appointed Special Advocates
More than 700,000 children experience abuse or neglect each year in the United States. Instead of playing with neighbors and making happy family memories, they are attending court hearings, adjusting to new foster homes and transitioning to new schools. That’s a heavy burden for a child to carry. With a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA), America’s most vulnerable children will have someone speaking up for their best interests.
Who we are?
Our Northwest Rocky Mountain CASA (NWRM CASA) serves the 14th Judicial District which is Routt, Moffat, and Grand Counties in Colorado. We have a small, hard-working staff, an engaged Board of Directors with representation from each county, and fantastic hands-on-with-the-children volunteers in each county – ALL of which are very passionate about helping children. With the COVID-19 pandemic and the East Troublesome fire, our services are needed more than ever.
How can you help?

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month
What does October mean to you? Fall leaves? Pumpkins? Halloween? All good answers.
But many organizations, like ourselves, know that October also symbolizes Domestic Violence Awareness Month. As Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) for children, many of our cases sadly involve domestic violence.
To help enlighten our followers to be able to also tell others about DV resources, we want to point you to one of many great online resources through National Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NCADV). In NCADV’s 2020 DVAM Toolkit: #WeAreResilient, you’ll find information, background, messaging, templates, and content that you’ll find helpful when promoting your involvement in #DVAM2021 and your commitment to seeing a national culture where we are all safe, empowered and free from domestic violence.
How We Are Making An Impact During COVID-19
Our Rocky Mountain Visitation Centers in each county are open for both in-person supervised visitations, as well as virtually. We know just how critical these visits are to the well being of the children and their families and we do not want cost to be a barrier. For that reason, we are happy to offer these supervised visitation services FREE OF CHARGE during the COVID-19 pandemic.

For children to have safety, stability, and hope for the future.
To inspire, empower, and educate the community and volunteers to advocate for the best interests of the child.
