The holidays should be a time to make happy memories with family. But they can be a very difficult time of year for the children in the Ninth Judicial District who have experienced abuse or neglect. Many of these children have been removed from their homes and placed in foster care. They’re attending court hearings, adjusting to new foster homes and transitioning to new schools. 

That is a heavy burden for a child to carry alone, especially during the holidays. 

A Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) volunteer is a caring, consistent adult for a child who’s experiencing the loneliness and uncertainty of foster care this holiday season. 

Children with a dedicated volunteer by their side have someone who will speak up for their best interests in the courtroom and community, and help them find the road home, wherever it lies. CASA volunteers make sure that every child has the opportunity to heal and thrive. 

Front Range CASA/GAL, Inc. is a part of a nationwide network of 93,300 trained volunteers serving 271,800 children across the country who have experienced abuse or neglect. Locally, on any given day this holiday season, 21 highly trained volunteers are showing our areas most vulnerable children that they are special and that there is hope for a brighter future. 

But we’re not done. With your support, more children can thrive. We at Front Range CASA are determined to make sure every child who has experienced abuse or neglect has the opportunity to thrive in a safe and loving home. 

Your generous support makes our work on behalf of these vulnerable children possible. 

Please help us reach more children by making a gift today or contact us on how to become a volunteer and make a difference in the life of a child. Together, we can change a child’s story.
