Mission Statement


Our volunteers are trained to become child advocates. They receive court appointments to work in the best interest of a abused or neglected child or sibling group that is currently in foster care. Through a series of objective interviews with family, teachers, doctors and counselors they paint a picture of the child's world and make a recommendation to the court for the child's longterm placement.

Description

Today CASA is a national non-profit agency with approximately 900 CASA programs in all 50 states with over 53,000 volunteers serving more than 207,000 children annually. CASA of Larimer County began in 1984.
