Hello Dedicated CASA Volunteers,
You are CASA of the Pikes Peak Region champions and the lifeblood of our organization, delivering our mission to over 1,759 children across our region last year. This is more children served than any year in CASA’s 28 year history. I am thrilled to announce our intention to find a new home to accommodate our exponential growth. We are now in the planning phase of this campaign we are calling: Under One Roof – Every Child Served.
This will be an incredible journey for CASA. As we move into this expanded space we will bring all five programs Under One Roof. This will not only improve the quality of our programming to better serve children, but also unleash program growth within each of our five unique services. Our new home will be a vehicle to recruit, train, and support more volunteers with continued quality, and act as a catalyst to completing Vision 2020, Every Child Served.
As our committed volunteers, imagine serving children and families through Advocacy, SEPT, The Hanger, MFCF Teen Programs, CFIT, Life Long Links, Kids Closet, and experiencing in-house volunteer trainings and in-services, and much more… all Under One Roof – Every Child Served.
You may have seen the big yellow sign at our Cascade office building, I am happy to announce we successfully sold our building and closed yesterday, June 1st. Our building was purchased after being on the market just a few short months. The buyers are McMahan & Karber CPA, LLC and Steve Carter. They are a generous group who support our work at CASA and have donated a month of free rent for us to remain at Cascade until the end of June. In addition, Gary Conover, owner of the Conover Building, has also generously donated temporary space for CASA while more efficient, practical, larger space is prepared for a move in late 2017.
Please find a timeline below and stay tuned for more information this summer. We thank you so much for your patience in our transition over the next few months.

We are excited to be entering into this with you, our committed volunteers. Everyone will play a role in this community campaign that will allow us to achieve Vision 2020, whether through time, treasure, or talent. Before, during, and after the move there will be many opportunities for connections, in-kind donations, cash contributions, volunteer testimonials, tours, and much more and we welcome your involvement. Stay tuned for more information on how you can play a part!
