Court Appointed Special Adovcates

CASA of Larimer County advocates for abused and neglected children in the legal system by partnering each child with a trained volunteer who is appointed by a judge to speak up for the child's best interest in court. A volunteer will meet with the child on a regular basis, consult with other professionals involved in the case (teachers, attorneys, therapists, foster parents, social workers), meet with extended family members and write objective reports to the court on the information they have gathered. These volunteers are often the one consistent person, the one consistent source of comfort, in the child's life as other professionals involved may change over the life of a case. CASA recruits, provides extensive training, supports, and supervises these volunteers.

CASA of Larimer County also operates the Harmony House Visitation Centers. Here children my have visits or exchanges with their family in a safe, non-threatening, home-like setting under the supervision of a trained community volunteer. With this opportunity families may maintain their relationships which helps reduce ongoing trauma to the child(ren).

Population(s) Served
Children and youth
Victims and oppressed people

The Harmony House provides a safe and home-like setting for supervised visitation for children and their non-custodial family members as well as a safe place for conflict-free exchanges for parents with shared custody. The house and grounds are integral to our services and set us apart from other organizations that may provide a similar service. Families can explore the houses together and use it much like they would in their own home. The Harmony House allows families to enjoy meals together, play outside, work on art projects, and continue making memories in a place that feels like home while the safety of the child is our upmost priority.
As a member of the Supervised Visitation Network (SVN) program, the Harmony House has helped establish best practices for other supervised visitation facilities and continues to be a model, both locally and nationally.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We are currently serving 70% of the children in need of a CASA volunteer and want to grow our financial and volunteer capacities to serve EVERY child in need of an advocate.

We have diversified funding sources, increased operating reserves, and established investment accounts to ensure the stability of fiscal resources. We are currently in the midst of evaluating and revamping the crisis plans and ensuring critical roles and functions are cross-trained across the organization. Additionally, we are investing in quality training and competitive compensation packages to retain staffing.

We have a strong team of professionals and community supporters who believe in our mission and are actively working toward furthering our mission.

Over the past four years, we have doubled our annual operating budgeting and the number of children served with a CASA volunteer.
