ADVOCATES FOR CHILDREN - CASA

Every day in our country, 1,900 children become victims of abuse or neglect, and four of them will die. This is a reality that Advocates for Children CASA rallies to change by training Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA volunteers), with the hope that these important voices will be heard in our communities.

 

For more than 32 years, Advocates for Children CASA has served abused and neglected children in Colorado’s 18th Judicial District (Arapahoe, Douglas, Lincoln and Elbert counties). CASA volunteers are trained to represent the best interests of children who have been removed from their homes due to abuse and neglect at the hands of those who are supposed to care for them. Each volunteer strives to ensure that all children dream, thrive, and grow with a sense of belonging and empowerment. Through the incredible strength of these volunteers, Advocates for Children-CASA advocated for the safety and well-being of 937 children last year, alone. For more information about the important work that Advocates for Children CASA is doing in our community, please check out https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fa8-K6tYvCg&feature=youtu.be.

 

On June 5, the Littleton Rotary Club will be joined by Josefina Raphael-Miliner (Executive Director), Andrea Tagtow (Director of Development & Community Relations), and Jack Cregan (Development Coordinator). The three are part of Advocates for Children CASA’s development team and have a wealth of experience and knowledge in child welfare and the important roles that CASA volunteers play in children’s’ lives.
