Friends of Clatsop CASA,
The team at Clatsop CASA Program is committed to doing everything we can to protect the health and safety of our communities during this challenging and unprecedented time. As such, in order to reduce exposure and the spread of COVID-19, CASA volunteers will no longer make home visits or attend meetings. Additionally, many court hearings in Clatsop County have been cancelled, or postponed, and the Department of Human Services (DHS) is limiting visits with children and families for the foreseeable future.
CASAs will continue to communicate via phone, email, and Skype with the children for whom they are advocating. In the midst of this pandemic, with children at home and away from school, children in foster care may be at an increased risk for abuse and neglect. Clatsop CASA’s work remains vital for our community’s most vulnerable children, especially in these uncertain and rapidly changing times.
You can ensure that we are able to continue advocacy and support for the children we serve. CASA needs your support today, now more than ever. Please consider making a contribution via one of the methods listed below. Your gift will directly support quality, individualized advocacy for children in foster care.
Thank you and take good care.
