Thank you to everyone who attended our 5th Annual Columbia County Benefit Breakfast in St. Helen’s on June 19th, 2019!

We are excited to announce that we raised $11,000 to support advocacy for Columbia County foster youth!

State Senator Betsy Johnson and CASA Executive Director Betsy Stark Miller both spoke at the event.

 All funds raised at this event directly support CASA’s capacity to serve the children of Columbia County through the recruitment, training, and mentorship of additional

CASA volunteers.


Inspirational speakers at this event included Senator Betsy Johnson, Julie Nix of DHS, Columbia County CASA volunteer Don Baille and Bikers Against Child Abuse.

We also appreciate the attendance of  the Executive Director of the United Way of Columbia County, Kathye Beck, CASA Board of Directors President Bill Gardner, and representatives from Community Services Consortium, SAFE and Greater Oregon Behavioral Health.

Guests enjoyed a buffet breakfast and pastries generously donated by Brown Butter Bakery.

CASA staff Allie Brady, Becca Lowry, and Erin Wirtz support their fellow staffers in Columbia County.


When a child who has been abused and neglected is going through the trauma of the court system, a CASA 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 and make a lasting difference in the life of a child.

We would especially like to thank our Presenting Sponsor, CareOregon, and our Challenge Match Sponsor, NW Natural!
