CASA for Children's Ambassador Board is made up of young professionals from across Portland industries who raise awareness about the mission of CASA in the community, assist with fundraising for the organization, and foster relationships amongst future community leaders.


When a child who has been abused and neglected is going through the trauma of the court system, a CASA advocate is tirelessly working to guide them through safely, quickly, and effectively.


Donate now online, it’s a safe and secure way to give. Your support will help children in our community who have been abused or neglected find safe, permanent homes.


We need volunteers more than ever to help a child find a safe, permanent home. Become a CASA advocate and make a lasting difference in the life of a child.
