Rob Millisor Heart Health Walk

Breckenridge Grand Vacations is a major grantor & supporter of CASA. They are hosting this event in remembrance of Rob Millisor who died last year from a heart attack (while on a humanitarian trip). The proceeds from the event will support heart health programs. We are supporting these efforts by participating in the walk or volunteering. It takes place on June 11, 2016 at Carter Park in Breckenridge from 8:30am to 1:00 pm. Join us for this important day!

Educational Resources

The Colorado Association of Families and children’s Agencies is hosting a conference on Wednesday July 20th at The Pines at Genesee. There is a full day of really interesting workshops centered around Trauma Focused Care for children. For more information call 720-570-8402.

Books for Children

We have many children’s books available for you to pick up and give to the children on your cases. CASA wants to make it a priority to get books in children’s hands!
