The Office of the Child's Representative (OCR) is mandated (CRS 13-91-101) to provide best interests representation to children in the State of Colorado, as well as client-directed representation for older youth in Dependency and Neglect (D&N) and Foster Youth in Transition proceedings. OCR currently provides best interests representation in all of its case types (CLR in Domestic Relations proceedings and GAL in all other case types), as well as client-directed representation for youth age 18 and older in D&N and Foster Youth in Transition proceedings.  OCR is hopeful that HB 22-1038 will convert the GAL role to a client-directed role for youth age 12 and older in D&N proceedings effective January 2023, effectively expanding its Counsel for Youth services to youth age 12 and older in that case type.  Pursuant to these statutory mandates, this office will contract with attorneys to provide attorney services as Guardians ad Litem, state-paid Child’s Legal Representatives, and Counsel for Youth. The OCR maintains appointment lists of contractors eligible for cases in each judicial district.

Together, we are committed to the fight for a healthy climate built on a foundation of environmental, racial, economic, and gender justice – a future where all people benefit from a healthy, thriving planet and a direct connection to nature. As the climate crisis and deeply entrenched systemic racism all fuel inequity, we will continue to fight for a bold, transformational agenda that recognizes the interconnectedness between our planet, our humanity, and our democracy. By recognizing that our destinies are tied, we continue to name that all things are fundamentally connected, and the overlap between ecology, race, gender, and representative government will move to either advance our collective humanity or to oppress it.
