Our mission is to advocate for safe, nurturing, and permanent connections to family and community so children who have experienced abuse and neglect have the opportunity to thrive.
CASA of Larimer County (CLC) is a nonprofit established in 1987 to train volunteers to speak up for children who have experienced abuse and/or neglect. The addition of supervised visitations and safe exchanges came in 1991 when the Harmony House facility was donated to help provide a safe place for supervised parenting time. The CASA and Family Connections services serve children ages birth through 18 years old. CLC was one of the first CASA programs in the state of Colorado and continues to be an emerging leader in best practices for serving children who have experienced abuse and/or neglect, by addressing the causes of abuse, and preventing recidivism of violence and abuse toward children. In 2019, CLC introduced Nurturing Parenting Programs to build the skills of parents completing supervised visits. Also in 2019, CLC implemented the Fostering Futures curriculum to help volunteer advocates working with teens in foster care better prepare these youth for living independently.

She has become a member of our family and we can't image life without her. Thank you to the CASA program for sending this angel to us." -Rebecca, Kinship Placement
