CASA of Southwest Montana
The goal of the CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) program in Montana is to attend to the needs and welfare of abused and neglected children. By working with trained volunteers, this local non-profit group works with children to provide them with a voice and a hope and a future.
CASA volunteers in the 5th Judicial District of Montana work in Beaverhead, Jefferson, and Madison Counties in numerous towns and cities across southwest Montana. Advocates are appointed by judges to speak out for the best interests of children who have been removed from their homes through no fault of their own. These children are usually in temporary foster care and group homes. The CASA is often the only constant in the lives of such children who often face an uncertain future.
The CASA program is supported through donations and partnerships with organizations, like the United Way, and members of the community. Whether you can donate 5 or 500 dollars, the CASA program and the children it serves would appreciate your tax deductible contribution.
As part of a competitive national re-granting of over 500,000 dollars in funds, the 5th Judicial District Voice for Children recently recieved a grant from the Jewelers for Children for 14,000 dollars. Please read the Dillon Tribune news article for more information about this generous contribution.
