CASA - a Court Appointed Special Advocate 

2017

If not you, then who?
 
Please consider joining us to learn how you can help us fix a heartbreaking situation affecting many of the nearly 600 children currently placed in foster homes in Marion County.
 
FACT:  Oregon law mandates a trained community volunteer for each child to make sure they are not lost in the overburdened and underfunded child welfare system or left to languish in inappropriate foster homes.
STATUS:  To cover the mandate, we need a minimum of 200 volunteers.
 

FIND OUT HOW YOU CAN HELP TURN THIS SITUATION AROUND
*Can you become a volunteer advocate, the voice of a foster child?
*Can you help us find other advocates through your social organization, or church, or email lists?
*Can you donate directly to CASA of Marion County?
*Can you help us with publicity?
*What other ideas do you have?
 
Let’s tackle this problem together!  

 
For the child,
