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. With your support, more children will have the opportunity to thrive in a safe and loving home.

Why Do People Support CASA?
To get others excited about supporting our nonprofit for Colorado Gives Day, we’d kicked off by having a little fun by asking our volunteers, board members, corporate sponsors, and past donors (everybody!) to share their reasons why they support CASA. You may also read them on our Facebook page. The reasoning why YOU support CASA would be welcomed too! We encourage you to use these hashtags with your posts: #iamforthechild #nwrmcasa #cogivesday2020 #givewhereyoulive
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 crisis.

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.
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.
