"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 foster care youth, a U of O graduate, and current Director of Programs & Partnerships for the Children's Trust Fund of Oregon.

We have SOLD OUT of raffle tickets! Thanks to everyone who bought tickets and supported CASA,

The drawing in on October 2, 2020 and will be held outside the Curtis Homes business office at 907 Portway, Hood River. Watch it live on our Facebook page!

This year’s playhouse was built by the crew at Curtis Homes, LLC and all building materials were donated by Tum-A-Lum Lumber in Hood River.  The house has a white & black modern farmhouse theme with a Dutch-style front door, window flower boxes & working windows. It is valued at $4,500. It will provide a delightful space for children to play for years to come.  Don’t need a playhouse? You can still support CASA by buying a "Foster Family Ticket.”  If a "Foster Family Ticket” is the winning ticket, the playhouse will be donated to a local foster family.  Thanks for supporting CASA and kids in foster care!

About Columbia Gorge CASA...

Listen to our Public Service Announcement recorded by
Circuit Court Judge Karen Ostrye by clicking here.
 
There are currently over 125 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)
monitors the child's needs and follows up to ensure services are provided. CASA volunteers are a 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 25 children waiting for a CASA volunteer to advocate on their behalf. Lift up a child's voice, a child's life. Become a CASA!
