The Mission of Child Advocates - Denver
CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) is to advocate for the best interests
of abused and neglected children in Denver Juvenile Court through the services
of specially selected and trained community volunteers from diverse cultural
and ethnic backgrounds. Our vision is that all children will have a safe
nurturing environment where they can thrive.
CASA is central to fulfilling society's most fundamental obligation by making
sure a qualified, compassionate adult will fight for and protect a child's
right to be safe, to be treated with dignity and respect and to learn and grow
in the safe embrace of a loving family. A CASA volunteer can not only change
the life of a child but also the life of future generations to come. Currently, Child
Advocates turns away 7 kids a week in Denver because we do not have the
resources to serve them. These children are waiting for a trained CASA
volunteer who will advocate for their best interests in court. We need your
help in reaching our goal of serving every child who passes through the system
so that they can be safe and find a permanent home.
