mission of Yamhill County CASA is to speak up for the best interests of
abused and neglected children who are under the jurisdiction of the
court. Our philosophy is to provide quality advocacy for victims of
abuse and neglect and to seek safe permanent homes for our kids as
quickly as possible. We depend on community support to achieve this
mission. The minimal amount of state funding we receive accounts for
less than 20% of our annual operating budget.
CASA makes a difference that can change a child’s life. Judges
respect our program and truly listen to what CASAs have to say when
making important decisions in the lives of children. A kid with a CASA spends less time in foster care, has better educational outcomes and is more likely to find a safe and permanent home.
CASAs are ordinary
people with extraordinary commitment. Please join them in supporting
Yamhill County kids.
