Dependency & Neglect Program
The Dependency & Neglect (D&N) program supports youth and the community as they provide as a voice for children of abuse and neglect in the court system covering the Fourth Judicial District, which includes the Tri-Lakes area. CASA of the Pikes Peak Region strengthens the community by recruiting volunteers, promoting community awareness, and serving our most vulnerable population, child victims of abuse and neglect.
Last fiscal year, CASA, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, served ~900 children through this program. CASA's goal is to ensure safe and permanent homes for these child victims so they can become healthy, productive adults and stop the cycle of abuse.
