Columbia Gorge CASA
Too many children in Wasco, Hood River and Sherman counties have been removed from their homes and are living in foster care because they were abused and/or neglected by their parents.
Columbia Gorge CASA recruits, trains, and supports community volunteers to advocate for these children and ensure that they do not languish in the well meaning, but over burdened child welfare system. The trained volunteer, called a "CASA” (Court Appointed Special Advocate) is appointed by a judge to monitor the child's needs and well-being; ensure that needed services are provided; and that all court timelines are met. A volunteer stays with the child until they are placed in a loving permanent home. For many abused children, a CASA volunteer is the only consistent adult presence in their lives. Children who have a CASA volunteer are substantially less likely to spend time in long-term foster care and less likely to reenter care.
