The 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 goal is to see every child in Yamhill County thrive in a safe and stable home. For children who come into State custody, we want to have, immediately available:
a CASA volunteer who can connect with the child
a CASA volunteer who acknowledges who the child is and where the child comes from
a CASA volunteer who will walk alongside that child on their journey through the child welfare system.
Yamhill County CASA believes that every child in Yamhill County deserves a safe and stable home. To achieve the best possible outcome for every child, we will recruit and maintain a diverse pool of volunteers trained in court processes, who are culturally competent and versed in the value of family history and connections, sensitive to barriers that trauma experiences introduce, and knowledgeable about the array of services available to help these children rebuild trust and regain a sense of safety.
