A Powerful Voice for Abused Kids

Was there ever a time in your life when you needed someone to stand up for you? Court Appointed Special Advocates, or CASA, provides a powerful voice for abused and neglected children. Today, 1,000 children live in foster care in Lane County. In an overburdened system, these children risk slipping through the cracks and suffering from further abuse. CASA volunteers have the power to prevent this tragic reality. These dedicated, highly-trained community members serve as fact finders for the judge by researching the background of each assigned case. They speak for the child in the courtroom, representing the child’s best interests, and work to move the child as quickly and effectively as possible through the system and into a safe, permanent home. Click here to learn about the proven outcomes of Court Appointed Special Advocacy.

Nearly 300 abused and neglected children here in Lane County are waiting for a CASA volunteer. If you or someone you know can volunteer to speak up for a child, or you wish to become a supporter of CASA, please contact us today.
