Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASAs) are trained volunteers who advocate for these children involved in the juvenile court system. CASAs provide a powerful voice in court for the neediest, most vulnerable children in our community. A child with a CASA volunteer is less than half as likely to re-enter the child abuse system, resulting in significant cost savings to the community and the state of Oregon. A child with a CASA volunteer is also more likely to be adopted than other children who are up for adoption. Our mission is to find safe, permanent housing for every child as fast as that can be feasibly done.
Last year our 141 CASA volunteers advocated for 356 abused and neglected children in our community. But with the current increase of abuse and neglect and due to lack of funding there were 547 other children who were unserved by CASA.
