CASA of Jefferson and Gilpin Counties
Serving our most vulnerable children through awareness, advocacy and support.
Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Jefferson and Gilpin Counties' mission is to provide trained volunteers to advocate in court for the safety and well-being of abused and neglected children. CASA Jeffco/Gilpin is the only program of its kind and the sole provider of volunteer advocacy in the 1st Judicial District for children who are victims of circumstances over which they have no control. CASA volunteers work first, last and always in the best interests of the children to ensure they don't get lost in the overburdened legal and social service system or languish in an inappropriate group or foster home. Through early intervention, we have an opportunity to help ensure that these children overcome the tragedy of abuse. Our goal is for our highly trained volunteers to play a key role in breaking the cycle of child abuse - one child at a time – and to ensure that each child is ultimately placed in a safe, permanent and nurturing home.
