CASA of the Pikes Peak Region provides a volunteer’s voice in court for children who are victims of abuse, neglect or domestic conflict and promotes community awareness of these issues to ensure safe and permanent homes.
CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) of the Pikes Peak Region is a volunteer-based nonprofit organization serving El Paso County and Teller County that trains and supervises volunteers to represent the best interests of our most vulnerable citizens – 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 are placed into safe, loving homes where they can thrive.
We offer four programs designed to meet the special needs of vulnerable children. Among them are the: Dependency and Neglect Program; Supervised Exchange and Parenting Time Program (SEPT), Milton Foster Children’s Fund Program, and Children and Families in Transition (CFIT) Program.
CASA of the Pikes Peak Region serves approximately 1,700 children per year in all our programs, but hundreds are still waiting for volunteer advocacy.
