CASA for Children of Multnomah, Washington, & Columbia Counties provides monthly program orientations in each county. You are invited to attend to learn more about our organization, child advocate roles and responsibilities, and the process of becoming a CASA volunteer. All potential child advocates must attend one of our orientations or meet with one of our recruiters before beginning the training sessions.

Note: Currently our greatest need is for advocates in Washington and Columbia Counties. There are many children waiting in Multnomah County as well, but as we secure necessary funding to hire additional supervisors to support more CASAs there, our ability to add volunteers will be limited for the next few months. Temporarily, volunteers who opt to serve in Washington or Columbia Counties will be given priority in our trainings and will have an opportunity to begin their work as CASAs sooner.


Please SIGN UP for an orientation date by contacting the Volunteer Recruiter  for the county in which you wish to attend:


Multnomah and Washington Counties:    Susan King at 503.988.6528  or

Columbia County:   Susan Leipzig at 503.410.5097 or
