Court Care for the Pikes Peak Region, Inc.


What

Court Care provides free childcare for anyone who has court-related business in the Pikes Peak Region. Children are welcomed into a nurturing, safe space away from potentially traumatic courtroom proceedings (e.g., domestic violence, divorce, rape, child custody, etc.). Struggling parents are able to speak with dignity and participate in legal matters without children seeing, hearing, or possibly distracting them

Why

Court Care insulates and protects children from traumatic testimony graphically reiterated in courtrooms every day. Without Court Care, children would attend court hearings, probation meetings, mandated drug treatment programs, or observe other matters that are simply inappropriate. Vulnerable children would be exposed to conflicts that could change the way they see family members and authority figures forever.

Needs

Court Care welcomes volunteers to serve on our Board. Donations of gently used children’s books, washable art supplies, diapers/pull-ups (all sizes), and baby wipes are appreciated.

Did You Know

In 2020 Court Care served 623 children from 411 families. 25% of these families experienced crimes of violence, domestic abuse, contested custody, or child abuse.

“As a victim of domestic violence, I knew things discussed in the Court Room would be confusing and frightening for my two daughters. Knowing they were safe; I was able to focus on court proceedings without concern about what they would hear or see.” — Anonymous parent who was a victim of domestic violence
