Hitting Close to Home
Domestic violence doesn't affect just the two people involved in an abusive relationship: It also hurts their children. And those children, the most vulnerable of victims, can't afford to wait for the system to right itself. This month, Westword is donating $10,000 to Denver CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates), a three-year-old program that trains volunteers to become the eyes and ears of the Denver Juvenile Court. Their job is to advocate for child victims in dependency-and-neglect cases--many of which involve domestic-violence situations--and to secure safe, permanent homes for those children in a timely manner.
To keep them safe.
