Outcomes

Court Appointed Special Advocacy is a nationally-recognized, research-based best practice with many positive proven outcomes for children.

Studies conducted by the U.S. Department of Justice Office (DOJ) of the Inspector General (OIG) of the National Court-Appointed Special Advocate Association (NCASAA) show CASA’s impact on children:

  • Prevention of Re-Abuse: A child with a CASA volunteer is half as likely to re-enter foster care because of future abuse.
  • Permanence: A child with a CASA volunteer is more likely to be adopted or returned home than languish in permanent foster care.
  • Less Time in Foster Care: Children with CASA volunteers spend an average of eight months less time in foster care, a┬ácost-savings to Oregon of $15,000 per child. Last year, CASA┬ásaved Oregon taxpayers over $21 million.
  • Better Representation: Court Appointed Special Advocates enhance the legal representation of children. They are highly effective in having their recommendations adopted by the court.
