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’re 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. With your support, more children will have the opportunity to thrive in a safe and loving home.
A Volunteer Is Priceless…
CASA Volunteers are EVERYDAY people who care about children!
- Volunteers for CASA come from all walks of life and backgrounds: many work full-time, some are retired, some are stay-at-home moms, and others are students or work part-time.
- A CASA volunteer is a trained and appointed by a judge to speak for the best interests of an abused and/or neglected child.
- CASA volunteers help assure the child’s emotional, physical, educational, spiritual, social and mental health needs are being met.
- There are over 900 CASA programs around the County. Find out more about the CASA movement and the stories of how CASA helped over 274,000 children last year by visiting the National CASA website.
