Front Range CASA/GAL, Inc. 
Welcome!


Welcome to the website for Front Range CASA/GAL, Inc!  We are very happy that you have found us and hope that we can provide you some information about what CASA is, the service we provide, and how you can help.

Front Range CASA/GAL, Inc is a nonprofit organization based in Conrad, Montana which serves children in north-central Montana.  We are an affiliate of the Montana state CASA organization and the National CASA organization.

Our mission is to provide a trained CASA volunteer for every abused and neglected child in the 9th Judicial District that needs one.  The 9th Judicial District consists of Glacier County, Toole County, Pondera County and Teton County.  At this time, we have 18 volunteers serving as CASAs for over 60 children in our region.  If you think you might be interested in serving as a volunteer, please contact Kiersta.  If you are interested in serving on the board, contact Kiersta or any current board member.

The all-volunteer board is made up of people from all four counties in the region, and we contract with Kiersta Sullivan to serve as the Executive Director of the Organization.  Our funding comes from donations and grants and we are always looking for additional ways to financially support our mission.

Front Range CASA is happy to announce that we have received a grant from the National CASA Association to help meet the expenses of our ever-expanding program due to the huge increases in the number of abuse and neglect cases in the 9th Judicial District.  This grant award will help assit the program in the cost of hiring a part-time office staff person, increasing the volunteer base, and retaining the current list of volunteer advocates.  This grant will futher help our program continue to make sure that every child in the 9th Judicial Court system due to abuse or neglect has a Court Appointed Special Advocate to represent them.

Front Range CASA was recently honored by the Conrad Area Chamber of Commerce with their Clydesdale Award which is given to an area group for their emonstrated hard work and team effort.  We want to thank the Chamber for their recognition of Front Range CASA, not only for the award, but the recognition that everything we are able to accomplish is due to a great deal of teamwork from a number of people!
