CASA receives recognition; next volunteer training begins June 26


Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of the Continental Divide was recently awarded certification by the National Court Appointed Special Advocate Association of Seattle, Wash. This recognizes that your local CASA organization is in compliance with high standards for quality child advocacy and provides excellent services to the abused and neglected children in our community.

CASA’s summer volunteer training will be an independent study program beginning June 26. As our economy has declined there has been an increase in the number of cases needing volunteers. These stressors impact every facet of family life. CASA volunteers advocate for children who are victims of abuse and neglect in the 5th Judicial District which includes Clear Creek, Eagle, Lake and Summit counties. They are appointed by the judge and speak on behalf of the child/ren involved in these cases. We are encouraging all who are interested in becoming an advocate for these children to call the CASA office in Dillon at (970) 513-9390. More info available at
