Many Cases Still Need CASA’s

In the CASA office, we still have cases that don’t have CASAs, especially in Eagle County. Please review the list below and let us know if you want more information about a case or whether you are ready to stand up and advocate for these children.
In Eagle:

  1. Existing case with one girl age 9 and one boy age 6
  2. New case with two boys age 5 years and 10 months
  3. New case with two girls age 3 1/2 years and 22 months

Technology Mentors Available

If you need more assistance with the switch to using Optima, we have technology mentors, people who are comfortable with technology and the Optima program and who would be willing to sit with others a few times to help them enter their data into Optima.

If you would like help from these technology mentors, contact the CASACD office.
