Statement of Purpose: CASA of the Pikes Peak Region was founded to train volunteers as advocates for victimized children and to educate the community about abuse and neglect. Through comprehensive training programs, CASA of the Pikes Peak Region educates a carefully screened and selected group of volunteers about child abuse, neglect, and domestic relations conflicts. They learn about the dynamics of child abuse and neglect, child development, advocating within the court system, the roles of the Department of Human Services, the judicial system, and many of the community resources available to children and families involved in these cases. The volunteers continue their training through regular in-services that provide additional information and support. The volunteers, or CASAs, appointed by the Court, generally work on one case at a time. They provide the families and victims of child abuse, neglect, and domestic conflict with information on court procedures, community resources, and support. CASAs monitor the court-ordered treatment plan to assure positive progress is being made and to assess if the children can be returned home. They write reports to the court, speak up in court and make recommendations as to the child's best interest. They provide factual, unbiased information to the Court about the child's and family's situation and progress, enabling the Court to make more informed decisions in the best interest of the child. CASA of the Pikes Peak Region educates the community about factors contributing to child abuse, neglect, and domestic conflicts, and how involved individuals can positively impact efforts to end this cycle.
