Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) is a nonprofit organization which trains and supports volunteers to speak out and act as advocates for the best interests of abused and neglected children. Volunteers are trained to work within the child welfare and family court systems and are appointed by judges to individual cases. With the help of a CASA volunteer, a child is half as likely to languish in the foster care system, and that much more likely to find a safe and permanent home where they can thrive.
In Colorado Springs, CASA is reaching approximately 70% of the children in need, consequently hundreds of children in our community have no one advocating for their rights and well-being. CASA is committed to making sure that every child in need has access to a trusted, compassionate advocate.
