Foster care should be temporary, not a way of life. There are nearly  4,000 children in Multnomah, Washington, and Columbia counties living in foster care that need a CASA volunteer to stand up for them in court. Help our communities abused and neglected children in the court system find a safe and permanent home with the help of a CASA volunteer.

 

Your donation helps recruit, train and support our CASA volunteers and provides the professional staff with the resources they need to advocate for over 1,100 children in Multnomah, Washington, and Columbia counties this year. For every dollar you give, 74 cents goes directly to advocating for those children in need.

 

Not everyone can be a CASA volunteer, but everyone can donate to help a child who has been abused or neglected find a safe and permanent home.
