Colorado CASA is a network of 18 programs across the state. These programs range from serving a few children to hundreds, and have from one staff member to over thirty. They encompass metro and rural areas, children and families of all ethnicities and financial positions, and handle challenges of geography and resources across the state.
A Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) receives special training and is appointed by a Judge as an Officer of the Court. Volunteers advocate for youth who have been abused and/or neglected. They focus on one youth at a time and as a result, they bring a great depth of understanding and empathy.
The State Office is an independent 501(c)3 membership organization that provides general network support to all the CASA programs in the state. It has four strategic focuses: Large-Scale Pass-Through Fundraising, Brand Awareness & Events, Data, and Legislative.
