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.
We get it. You have lots of choices of nonprofits in your community to support during Colorado Gives Day. And we value the work they all do and the tough decision you have to choose among them. So if you’re asking, “why should I support Northwest Rocky Mountain CASA?”, hopefully we can easily explain.
We strongly believe the work we do truly can change a child’s story. Not just any child. A child who is facing the court system because of either abuse of neglect at home. A child who quite often is fearful and misses her or her parents.
Our CASA volunteers’ sole purpose is to be the voice for the child. Our court reports to the judges help with life-changing decisions made, whether it be to reunify the child with his or her parents or place the child in kinship care or a foster home. Ultimately, we want these precious children to have safety, stability and hope for the future.
We encourage you to read some of the testimonials from real-life scenarios on our Colorado Gives page. Hopefully they help you to understand just how impactful the work is that we do, and why your gift can make a difference.
