CASA is a nonprofit which trains and supports volunteers to speak out and act as advocates for the best interests of abused and neglected children. Volunteers are trained to work in the child welfare and family court systems and are appointed by judges to individual cases. With the help of a CASA volunteer, a child is half as likely to languish in the foster care system, and that much more likely to find a safe and permanent home where they can thrive.

In El Paso County, CASA is reaching approximately 70% of the children in need. This means there are hundreds of children in our community with no one advocating for their rights and well-being. CASA is committed to making sure that every child in need has access to a trusted, compassionate advocate.

Learn how YOU can make a difference for a child at our next info hour on December 19.There will be refreshments, and a Q&A with staff and volunteers.

CASA 4-1-1 Hour 
December 19, 5:30-6:30 pm
418 S. Weber St.

This class will be presented by Chief Jacob Shirk of the Monument Police Department.

What would you do if there was an “active shooter” that showed up at your work? How would you respond?  Would you hide under a desk as was preached for many years, or are there other options?  Come join us in this presentation to better understand what your options may be.  Learn about what law enforcement does when they respond and what you should or should not do when they arrive. 
 
This presentation is based upon lesson learned and outlines best practices which will better prepare you to deal with these real world tragedies.
