CASA of Denver
Court Appointed Special Advocate
Child Advocates-Denver CASA’s mission 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.
In a typical year, more than 1,100 children in Denver County go through the court system because their family is in crisis. Sometimes these children are able to live at home with their parents. More often, however, these children wind up in a foster home. In 2015, over 200 children in Denver County spent time in foster care. Unfortunately, the system that is supposed to protect children isn’t always equipped to ensure that their basic needs and rights are protected.
