Child Abuse Prevention Month

Help Prevent Child Abuse

April is Child Abuse Prevention Month, a time to help people across the country understand that safe, stable, and nurturing relationships and environments are necessary to ensure that children thrive.  Blue Pinwheels signify support and solidarity for abused and neglected children in our communities.

CASA of the Continental Divide is creating a Pinwheel Garden in the Town of Dillon and ask that you help our garden grow.  Your donation will go directly to supporting youth in dependency and neglect cases in Clear Creek, Eagle, Lake, and Summit County.  To do so, CASA will recruit train, mentor, and support volunteers who advocate for the youth in court.  These volunteers are the voice of the child during court proceedings working to ensure they are in safe and permanent homes.   Your donation will lift up a child’s voice. Change a Child’s Story.

Everybody plays a part in preventing child abuse. Everyone has the power to make great childhoods happen- especially YOU!

Place a Pinwheel in Our Garden

Help spread awareness by placing a pinwheel in your window, garden, at your office, or we can add it to our Pinwheel Garden on Lake Dillon Drive. Your donation can remain anonymous or we are happy to add your name or business to your pinwheel.

Follow the prompts on the form below to complete your donation.

Should you have any questions or need assistance please contact the CASACD office at (970) 513-9390
