CASA of Linn County, Inc. is a non-profit organization that supports volunteers who advocate for the best interest of abused and neglected children under the protection of the Juvenile Court.
Our purpose is to secure a safe, permanent home for every child in foster care as quickly as possible.
Our children need to do more than survive. They need to thrive in the safety of a living family throughout their childhood.
When a child cannot live safely at home a CASA will help ensure their safe passage out of foster care.
A CASA is specially trained to know what is in a child’s best interest and how to get the child’s needs met.
Every child in the foster care and child welfare system should have a CASA volunteer.
You can help in this mission by becoming a Court Appointed Special Advocate, a Connection Volunteer, or by providing critical financial support.
Society has a fundamental obligation to ensure that the basic rights and needs of every child are met. This is about ensuring that every child has the right to learn, grow, and be treated with dignity and respect.
CASA volunteers are a formidable force that fight for these rights. There is no one else like a CASA volunteer.
Last year in Linn County, 225 abused and neglected children in 2012 received the powerful voice of a Court Appointed Special Advocate.
62 children were placed into safe, permanent, forever homes where they can thrive.
There are still 187 children waiting for a CASA.
