CASA of the Ninth is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization serving Garfield, Pitkin, and Rio Blanco counties in Colorado. We train and supervise volunteer court appointed special advocates who represent the best interests of victims of child abuse and neglect in the Ninth Judicial District. We are a member of the National CASA Association and Colorado CASA. CASA volunteers are appointed by judges to be a voice for abused and neglected children in court and in the community. The desired result is that children be placed in safe, loving homes where they can thrive. There are over 100 children involved in abuse and neglect cases in the Ninth Judicial Circuit of Colorado. Our goal is to help these children find a safe and permanent home.
