Event description

Description

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. For some kids, this could be the most important breakfast of the year.

Every 47 minutes a child experiences abuse and/or neglect in Colorado. Many of these children will be removed from their homes and families. Throughout it all there is one person who offers stability and hope. A Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) volunteer fulfills society's most fundamental obligation by advocating for a child's right to be safe, treated with dignity and respect, and to be able to learn and grow. Supporting CASA is a powerful way you can directly support your community.

Since it's founding in 1987, CASA of Larimer has been committed to advocating for a safe and permanent home where children can thrive and have a sense of belonging. In the past year, CASA of Larimer made unprecedented growth in the CASA volunteers appointed to serve children healing from abuse.

  • 250 children had a CASA volunteer
  • 79 new CASA volunteers were sworn in
  • 122 CASA volunteers were actively serving on cases
  • CASA volunteers spent 4,252 hours with children and advocating for them in court

Why Light of Hope?

There are always more children to serve, more gains to be made and more money to raise when it comes to abuse and neglect. While we served 250 children in 2018, that means over 350 children went without the consistent advocacy provided by a CASA volunteer. To meet our goal of serving every child in need of a CASA volunteer by the end of 2020, CASA of Larimer is committed to a rigorous growth plan and we need your support to accomplish this goal.

Join us in supporting these children by attending our upcoming Light of Hope Breakfast. The event will celebrate the impact CASA volunteers have in providing hope and changing the futures of children healing from abuse and neglect.
