Mission Statement

We provide a voice in court for abused and neglected children and a safe place in the community for conflict-free family interactions.

Organization History

CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate), Inc. of Larimer County is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization (EIN# 84-1048149) that trains volunteers to speak up for children, who are abused, neglected or abandoned by their families. CASA has served Larimer County since 1987 as an independent chapter of the National CASA Association. It was the first CASA program established in the state.

In 1991, CASA opened the Harmony House Visitation Center for Children in a historic farmhouse on Harmony Road in Fort Collins, which was donated to CASA for this purpose. The Harmony House serves children from birth to age 18 in Larimer County and the 8th Judicial District.

Testimonials

From a Guardian ad litem: "This CASA was outstanding both as a support for this youth and her family and regarding her communication. Thanks!"
From a Department of Human Services caseworker: (The CASA) was great with (the child). (The child) always enjoyed their time together and the grandmother always had positive remarks regarding (the CASA). (The CASA) was always available by email when needed. Thank you!"
From a parent: "I would like to thank the CASA organization for all their hard work on my case. My daughter has become very close with her CASA. I have learned that out of a very bad situation something very good can come out of it. I would like to personally thank (the CASA) for everything she has done for my family and all the time and effort that she has put into this case. At first I didn't understand why I needed a CASA on my case when there was already so many people involved. Now I know that a CASA is the eyes and ears of my child in court. CASA spends a lot of time with the children and really learn who they are. I feel that (the CASA) went above and beyond and was a true blessing for my daughter. Thanks again to everybody involved in CASA."
