Child abuse and neglect exists in every community in the United States. It sees no socio-economic or cultural boundaries.
CASA of the 7th Judicial District (Court Appointed Special Advocates-CASA) is dedicated to providing a voice for abused and neglected children who have been removed from their homes and find themselves in the courts and child welfare systems through no fault of their own.
There are children in our communities waiting for a caring, consistent friend and advocate, someone to help make their life a little easier, someone eager and willing to champion for their future — someone just like you.
Become a CASA volunteer through assisted study built around your schedule, or plan to join our upcoming September class. Serving our most vulnerable population as a CASA volunteer is a powerful way for concerned citizens to become change agents in their communities. Early intervention helps prevent further victimization of these children and helps stop them from perpetuating the cycle on future generations, strengthening the social fabric of our community one child at a time.
"Child abuse is a serious, generational, societal issue that can ultimately only be addressed as a community," said Stacey Ryan, CASA's development director. "Child abuse prevention is everyone's job. CASA volunteers are shining examples of those leading this charge."
CASA is affiliated with the National CASA Association and CASA in Colorado. CASA began serving Delta, Gunnison, Hinsdale, Montrose, Ouray, and San Miguel — the counties that comprise the 7th Judicial District — in 2000.blog comments powered by Disqus
