A CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) is a highly trained community volunteer who advocates for abused and neglected children (age 0-18) going through the court system.
CASAs listen first. Then they act. CASAs spend their time getting to know the child by interacting directly with them and talking to others in the child’s life. CASAs use the info they gather to inform judges and other professionals of what the child needs and work towards a safe, permanent home for that child.
In 2016, Voices for Children CASAs volunteered 3,961 hours and served 174 children in Boulder County. There are hundreds more children waiting for the caring support of a CASA.
