Jefferson & Gilpin counties rank 3rd of 22 districts in the state for the number of dependency and neglect cases filed.
The abuses, trauma and neglect these children suffer is eased with a CASA Advocate by their side. In Jefferson and Gilpin counties, 180+ CASA volunteers help our most vulnerable children, yet still only 35% of cases are able to be paired with a CASA volunteer.
A Night for CASA raises necessary funds for volunteer training and community programs. Reggie Rivers, ex-Bronco, will emcee the event set for Saturday, Sept. 23, at the Marriott Denver West. Get your tickets today.
