Charity Spotlight: CASA – Court Appointed Special Advocates

Slifer Smith & Frampton is proud to support our local charities through our SSF Foundation. This month’s featured charity is CASA – Court Appointed Special Advocates. CASA is a nonprofit organization that trains and supervises volunteers to represent the best interests of 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 be placed in safe, loving homes where they can thrive.

CASA is a national organization with branches all over the country. Our local branch, CASA of the Continental Divide, covers Summit, Eagle, Lake and Clear Creek counties. It is run by 65 child advocate volunteers who work hard making sure that the child they serve is being well cared for and receiving loving support through a difficult process. Last year the CASA of the Continental Divide volunteers and board members donated over 5,000+ hours of their time and drove over 45,000 miles on behalf of CASA and the children they serve.

CASA’s goal is to have volunteers serving 100% of child welfare and truancy cases throughout the district. To learn more about becoming a volunteer visit the “Volunteer Training” section of the website. Also, be on the lookout for their annual charity golf tournament in June of 2019.
