We advocate for the best interests of abused and neglected children who are under the protection of the court. We dedicate our resources to recruiting, training and supporting volunteers to provide quality advocacy to as many children as we can.
Bottom Line for Portland
CASA for Children served 1,070 children this year. That’s one third of the over 3,000 children in foster care in Multnomah, Washington, and Columbia counties. These 1,070 children and young adults received the benefit of a trained CASA who advocated for their best interests, helped protect them from the dangers of the situation, fought to get them the services they needed, and helped to find them a safe, permanent home as quickly as possible.
“You’re there, you’re a constant. You communicate with the case workers, with the foster parent, with the therapist and the teachers. You live and breathe it, being a part of these kids’ lives and wanting the best for them.”
—CASA volunteer Susan Logan
