CASA of Jefferson & Gilpin Counties does amazing work helping kids in the foster care system. Caring volunteers from the community are matched with a child or set of siblings who have been removed from their home due to abuse or neglect. CASA volunteers are responsible for building a relationship with their CASA child, being a steady and consistent adult in the child's life, advocating for the child in court, and providing essential information so the judge can decide on the best living situation for the child. I've been volunteering for the organization for 5 years and love making a difference in the lives of kids in need.

I love volunteering with CASA of Jefferson & Gilpin Counties! I meet with my CASA child once a week and get to feel like I am making a real difference in her life.
