Northwest Rocky Mountain CASAOrganization Name:  Northwest Rocky Mountain CASA

Agency Description:
NWRM CASA provides advocacy services for abused and neglected children in Moffat, Routt and Grand Counties. CASAs (Court Appointed Special Advocates) are volunteers who are screened and trained to work with children and families in the child welfare court systems. Their primary role is to assure these children’s emotional, physical, educational and mental health needs are met and to help assure they are placed in a safe permanent home. CASAs are not professionals but are individuals who are passionate about children and want to make a difference in their lives. CASAs are assigned to a child by a Judge. The CASA meets with the child regularly and also gathers information from the family, foster parents, counselors, teachers etc, and provides the information to the Judge. This allows the Judge to have adequate information in order to make good decisions in the child’s best interests.
