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.
