CASAs are a diverse group of well trained community volunteers who are
appointed by the juvenile court to represent the "best interests" of children
involved in the child welfare system.
CASA volunteers have been serving abused and neglected children in
Clatsop County since 1992. Our 45 active CASA volunteers advocate for between 90 and 100
children, and we have a list of children who are waiting for a CASA volunteer. CASAs also help to focus community attention on
local issues of child abuse and neglect.
CASAs across the country spend thousands of hours every year working on behalf of children
now residing in safe, nurturing, permanent homes because of their efforts.
