CASA House Denver

by Teammates August 04, 2017 No Comments

We would love to take some time to talk about an organization that means a lot to Teammates, and Denver's design community.

For those unfamiliar with CASA ... “CASA volunteers are appointed by judges to advocate for the best interests of abused and neglected children in court and other settings … Nearly 700,000 children experience abuse or neglect each year. Instead of playing with neighbors and making happy family memories, they’re attending court hearings, adjusting to new foster homes and transitioning to new schools. That’s a heavy burden for a child to carry. With a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) volunteer dedicated to their case, America’s most vulnerable children will have someone speaking up for their best interests. With [our] support, more children will have the opportunity to thrive in a safe and loving home."

Teammates was honored to take part in CASA's new house in Denver's Capital Hill neighborhood! This project, lead by ASID, involved taking an older home and transforming the design within to be a warm, welcoming place for CASAs and the children they work with. Volunteers came together from all over the Denver design community.

Take a peak at this video to see the amazing before and after photos of the CASA house.
