Everything we do has a purpose and a message behind it, which seeks to help/improve a child’s core belief system.

Being involved with this program as an adult has changed my view of the world and made me a much kinder and empathetic person.

They have to have a taste. They have to have a vision of something else. They have to be able to know that there's something else out there in order to strive for it.

I will be retiring in February but I believe that this project (My Bag) is so important that I will continue to pick up bags for the Colville office.

About CASA Partners
CASA Partners (Court Appointed Special Advocate) is dedicated to supporting the local CASA Program and enhancing the lives of abused and neglected children currently in the foster care system in Spokane Country and those children who are at risk of entering the system.
Beginning with a three-year $30,000 grant from the Junior League of Spokane, and continuing to build with the generous support of many community organizations, businesses, and individual donors, this all volunteer, 501 (c) (3) charitable organization is able to enrich the lives of children in the foster care system.
The more than 1,000 children and youth who are currently living in foster care through Child Protective Service (CPS) are among Spokane County’s most disadvantaged citizens. These children have been severely abused and neglected, and belong to families who have failed them. They rarely have a relative who is willing or able to care for them. They are usually separated from siblings and end up living in foster homes with strangers. They have few, if any, personal belongings. Youngsters living in foster care or relative placement commonly suffer from depression, behavior disturbances, poor health, learning delays, confusion, fear, and loneliness.
CASA Partners is dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for children placed in the foster care system by allowing them to experience some of the pleasures of being a child.
