We believe in advocating for the children.

For children like Samantha, childhood means something very different from what most of us knew growing up. And then there’s the 8 year old whose mother tells her over and over again how “ugly, fat, and stupid” she is, while repeatedly physically abusing her. Or the 14 year old who is afraid to go to sleep because her step father might slip into her room. And even, the 5 year old, whose parents are trying hard to maintain his health and safety, but keep falling on hard times.

But I did have hope that one day I could know a life beyond that, a life filled with love and laughter and happiness. - Former Foster Youth, Samantha.” Voices for Children CASA of Boulder County provides trained,  C ourt  A ppointed  S pecial  A dvocate Volunteers to advocate for the needs of abused and neglected children in Boulder County.

These are the children our CASAs serve.

Voices for Children CASA trains and supports community volunteers to advocate for the needs of abused and neglected children going through the court system. Our CASA volunteers make sure that the court system hears the voices of the youngest and most vulnerable whom it serves and provides these children with a consistent, positive adult in their lives; an adult who will tell them that they are beautiful, and smart, and worthy of love.

 
 

Our children need people who are willing to stand up.

 

Our CASA Volunteers and Generous Supporters help our youngest and our most vulnerable so that ALL children of Boulder County can have a safe, nurturing environment where they can thrive.

Other Ways to Give.

Your contribution, no matter what size, changes the odds for a child in need.

CASA is the only volunteer position that empowers everyday citizens to be appointed by the Court. Our CASA Volunteers work one-on-one with a child victim of abuse or neglect here in Boulder County, getting to know the child as the amazing person they are, and then making recommendations about what that child needs to thrive. It’s because of your generous support that we are able to have such a huge impact on the children of Boulder County. A gift to Voices for Children of Boulder County CASA helps train and support our CASA Volunteers, enhance our Community Outreach, and lift up our Children.
