Get involved with, advocate for, and support community programs that support children.
Many abused children are brought into the juvenile dependency court system to hopefully find protection from further abuse. Every day, Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) volunteers in Clatsop County help these children replace a world of fear with one of hope. Through the work of a single caring individual, the four-year-old child has a chance for a positive future. So when you ask yourself, “What can one person do?” In the case of an abused and neglected child, you can do more than you’ll ever know.
Every child deserves a life free of abuse or neglect. Every child deserves a safe, permanent home. Now more than ever we need to, as a community, renew our commitment to protect our children!
