Upcoming Event for CASA Brings Stories of Hope for Children
Help Bring the Power of CASA to more Children at CASA’s Light of Hope Event ~
Adams & Broomfield Counties, Colo. – Support children in your community at this year’s Light of Hope event! CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) of Adams & Broomfield Counties will be hosting Light of Hope on Tuesday, April 19th at the Omni Interlocken Hotel. There will be both a breakfast program from 8-9am, as well as a lunch program from 12-1pm. Both programs are free to attend.
This year’s fundraiser aims to increase awareness about CASA’s mission and recruit CASA Volunteers, while raising vital funds to continue providing advocacy for children who have experienced abuse and neglect. The event will include inspiring stories to illustrate the vital role CASA plays in supporting children in need and strengthening families.
CASA of Adams & Broomfield Counties is a community-based, nonprofit organization that provides court-appointed volunteer advocacy for children and youth from the child welfare system. CASA Volunteers are appointed by judges to be a voice for these children in court. The desired result is that every child is safe, has a permanent home, and the opportunity to thrive.
In addition to hearing the powerful story of CASA Volunteers and their former CASA family, the event will feature Keynote Speaker Lori Poland, as well as emcee Reed Saunders.
Each year in Adams & Broomfield Counties, there are approximately 1,600 children with an open child abuse and neglect case. While CASA of Adams & Broomfield Counties served 635 children last year, the need remains for more resources and more volunteers to close this gap and serve more children. Help bring the Power of CASA to more children in our community.
CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) of Adams and Broomfield Counties is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization that works to make sure that every child from the child welfare system has a caring, compassionate CASA Volunteer who will help give them a voice in their search for a safe, permanent home where they can thrive. Each year, in Adams and Broomfield Counties, there are over 1,600 children who have been physically, sexually or emotionally abused or neglected and have an open court case.
