Dear CASA Family,

Today we are announcing the departure of our Executive Director, Jenny Bender, who has decided to step down to pursue new and exciting opportunities.

Jenny has been an integral part of our organization for 6 ½ years, leading with passion and an unwavering commitment to our mission. Jenny has served our CASA community for nearly a decade. We thank her for her service to COCASA and all CASA programs in the state. 

As Jenny embarks on this new chapter, we extend our deepest gratitude for her dedication and hard work. While we will miss her, we are excited to see what the future holds for her. And she has promised not to be a stranger to our network! 

To ensure a smooth transition, the Board of Directors has begun a search for a new Executive Director. We are also seeking an Interim Executive Director who has familiarity with CASA, to assist with day-to-day operations and the onboarding of the new ED. 

Please join us in thanking Jenny for her service and wishing her the very best for the future.

With heartfelt gratitude,

Megan Kilpatrick
Colorado CASA
Board Chair
