Review from Guidestar

CASA of Lane County is one of the most well run, strategic non-profits I have had the pleasure of being associated with. In the last seven years, I have served on various committees, the board of directors and I am a donor. My husband went through the training and served as a CASA on two cases prior to my involvement with the organization.

In my 15+ years of working for and volunteering with non-profits, I have seen few that match CASA in their strategic focus and emphasis on mission. The staff are professional and mission driven.

The biggest challenge for this organization is for the general public to know and understand their vital roll in ensuring the safety and security of our community's most vulnerable children. But, that is changing with the organizations consistent effort to raise awareness and tell their story. My life is richer for having served this organziation.

I have worked with this agency for several years. I am extremely impressed by the quality of leadership exhibited by the board and the management team. Management has been innovative in developing a new model for the supervision of volunteers that is receiving national attention. The organization remains fiscally sound and dedicated to the mission. I serve as a CASA volunteer appointed by the court, as a member of the development committee, and on the legislative committee. This is a strong and excellent non-profit that accomplishes critical work with at risk children.

I think this agency could do a really wonderful job if they had more qualified staff. I felt as if the supervisor and staff I encountered needed more professional training in social services. It seemed that many of the supervisors and staff were friends and that was the basis for their hire, not professional experience or training.

Get a professional to run the organization, hire better qualified staff.

A bit disorganized.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Hire more professional staff with the proper education and training.
