By working alongside community organizations, we are able to build and renovate affordable housing and neighborhood facilities. We provide programs and resources that increase families’ financial well-being. We are advocates, organizers and agents for change working throughout the state of Oregon.

At CASA, we commit to continually examining our role in both perpetuating and combating institutional racism because we recognize that the communities we partner with face many societal inequities. We recognize the history and ongoing impacts of racism in our country, state and institutions.

We celebrate the identities of all involved with CASA, past and present. We are an organization that strives to respect the race, ethnicity, ancestry, color, size, disability, national origin, age, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, socioeconomic status, geography, citizenship status, criminal background, religious background, marital status, military status, strengths and differences of all people.

We acknowledge that we will always have room to grow as an organization and as individuals in our understanding of racism and oppression, and commit ourselves to ongoing alignment of our policies and practices to advance racial equity, inclusion and freedom of expression.

As organizers, advocates and development consultants, racial equity and inclusion should manifest at all levels of our programs. Through collaboration, we strive to build hope, homes, and financial health to both heal and strengthen our communities.
