Meet Our Children
Read about a few of the children we serve, and see how you can help us ensure that more children's stories have happier endings.

"To give a child a CASA is to give them a voice. To give them a voice is to give them hope, and to give them hope is to give them the world. I believe that with all my heart.”

Pamela, former CASA youth, now an OSU graduate

About Columbia Gorge CASA...

Currently, there are more than 150 children in Wasco, Hood River and Sherman Counties who
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 - just like you - 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)
monitor the child's needs and follow up to ensure services are provided. CASA volunteers area lifeline for children during this traumatic time in their lives - a bearer of hope.

We need for more CASA volunteers so that we can serve all children in foster care here in the Gorge. Currently, there are 60 children waiting for a CASA volunteer to advocate on their behalf. Lift up a child's voice, a child's life. Become a CASA!
