Why we are going over:
Every day we see the fears and challenges the children we serve face; horrific abuse and neglect, abandonment, multiple homes, institutionalizations...
They have to face these challenges and life-lasting consequences. The very least we can do is face our fears and climb down a building while getting our friends excited to raise money for a cause that gives these children a VOICE .
About CASA of Pueblo
CASA is a vital program making an impact in reducing child abuse and neglect in our communities and helping to move children out of the system and into safe permanent homes faster and with fewer foster placements. It has been established that the intervention of a support system or support individual can make the difference in the life of the child and affect positive change for the future.
CASA of Pueblo serves children ranging in age from 0-18 involved in Dependency and Neglect court actions because of allegations of abuse and/or neglect. CASA volunteers have to be specially trained to identify safety and risk factors that lead to child abuse and neglect. CASA volunteers work with children who have special needs or disabilities and are also trained in the areas of cultural competence and working with families who have elements of substance abuse, domestic violence, poverty, etc.
