The CASA Mission
Provide court advocacy and support in the 5th Judicial District of Colorado for abused and neglected children in pursuit of safe and permanent homes.
CASA of the Continental Divide is a nonprofit organization that trains and supervises volunteers who advocate for and 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. As a CASA Volunteer you help ensure that children are placed in safe, loving homes where they can thrive.

Our Upcoming Training Information
CASA of the Continental Divide offers pre-service volunteer trainings every other month in Eagle and Summit County
In this 7-week semi-independent volunteer training curriculum, students complete 5 self-guided sessions and participate in 4 – 3 hour in-person volunteer training sessions. The in-person volunteer training sessions reinforce concepts learned by completing the self-guided sessions. In addition to the pre-service volunteer training, students observe at least 2 courtroom proceedings and participate in the Colorado Mandatory Reporter training. Students should have average computer skills, own a personal computer and have access to the internet.
Submit Your Application Today!
Thank you for your interest in being a CASA/GAL volunteer! All volunteer advocates receive at least 30 hours of training before they are assigned a case. Training provides the volunteer with much needed information about the standards for handling a case. Training also is a wonderful opportunity to network with other volunteers, while learning about the needs of children and families in our community.
