CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) of the Ninth is a volunteer-based nonprofit organization serving Pitkin, Garfield, and Rio Blanco counties that trains and supervises volunteers to represent the best interests of our most vulnerable citizens – victims of child abuse, neglect, and severe domestic conflict. CASA volunteers are appointed by judges to be a voice for these children in court and in the community. The desired result is that children are placed in safe, loving homes where they can thrive.

CASA of the Ninth strives to serve 100 percent of children who have been abused and neglected in Colorado’s Ninth Judicial District.

At a Glance:

CASA helps ensure that abused children get out of the child welfare, foster care, and legal systems and into safe and permanent homes more quickly than they would otherwise. CASA promotes early intervention to stop the cycle of generational abuse.

CASA intervention:

  • offers abused and neglected children the opportunity to thrive in safe and permanent homes;
  • interrupts possible delinquent and criminal behaviors, which often take root in abusive and unstable homes;
  • adds to true “quality of life.” CASA advocacy gives abused and neglected children the opportunity to become contributors – assets to the community rather than deficits.
