    CASA Invites You To Be A Volunteer For A Child!


    Read More
    CASA of Coos and Curry Counties is looking for volunteers who want to help make a difference in children's lives. We train and support volunteers to advocate for children in foster care. We provide all the training and support needed.
    How CASA Works: When a child comes into foster care a judge will ask for a CASA. Our program finds a volunteer who is ready to serve a child and we have them appointed. The CASA will go visit the child in their resource (foster) home to make sure their needs are being met and hear from the child's resource parents. The CASA needs to visit the child at least once per month. CASAs can go and speak with anyone involved with the child. This includes teachers, counselors, doctors, family, etc. With help from their CASA staff supervisor, the CASA will prepare a report for the court, that gives the judge more information for making decisions for the child. CASAs preferably serve one child at a time. Out of the home volunteer time (visiting child, attending meetings) is about 5 hours a month, in-home time (reading documents and emails) is about 5 hours a month.
    Every child deserves to have a voice and an adult, just like you, making sure that voice is heard! We offer new CASA training at least 3 times per year. Contact our CASA office for more information., 541-435-7103.

    Children entering second through fifth grades are invited to participate in Create Your Own Musical!, a two-week music camp being held at Emmanuel Episcopal Church June 19-30. At the Create Your Own Musical! camp, students create and perform dialogue, lyrics, music, and choreography for a short musical under the direction of camp director Kate Moody and teaching assistant, Matthew Reynolds. Create Your Own Musical! is the brainchild of composer, pianist, and music teacher Kate Moody, who developed the Creative Method of music education when she began teaching music in 1990. The Creative Method combines traditional music strategies (reading and reproducing written notes and rhythms) with learning scales and chords, and writing and improvising music with those scales and chords.
    Musical experience is great, but not required: since all of the parts are created during the camp, different levels can be mixed. The June, 2023 camp musical will be about Harlequin, a child whose widowed parent can't buy a costume for Harlequin to wear to the village fair. The other village children each cut out a piece of their own costume so that there is enough fabric for Harlequin's costume - which turns out to be the most colorful of all!
    This free camp is underwritten by a generous grant from Emmanuel Episcopal Church. Space is limited, so early registration is encouraged. Campers can register on the Emmanuel Episcopal Church website:
    Emmanuel Episcopal Church follows Safe Church Guidelines in all its youth related activities.

Double Up Food Bucks matches SNAP benefits (formerly known as food stamps) spent on fruits and vegetables. The program began in Michigan in 2009 and has since become a model for similar statewide programs, helping people across the country put nutritious food on the table by expanding access to healthy food and sparking economic opportunity.
    Coos Head Food Co-Op is excited to join the effort to make fresh fruits and vegetables more accessible and cost-effective. Not only does this program support shoppers by reducing economic barriers, it also supports our local farmers who provide much of the produce we sell in our store.
    Items eligible for Double Up Food Bucks are fresh fruits and vegetables only (nothing canned or pre-packaged, no added salt, sugar, preservatives). When customers purchase eligible items using their SNAP benefits, they will automatically receive a receipt with their matched Double Up Food Bucks dollar amount up to $20 printed at the bottom. Customers need to save these receipts in order to use them during future transactions.
    We would like to thank Double Up Food Bucks and The Oregon Food Bank as well as Jamar Ruff and The BEET Food System Consortium for all of their help and support throughout this process.
    Coos Head Food Co-Op is a community-owned grocery store that has been in operation since 1971. As the oldest operating natural food store on the Southern Oregon Coast, Coos Head Food Co-Op is committed to actively contributing to the health and well being of our community by serving as a source for wholesome, natural, and organic foods. Membership has never been a requirement to shop here. Everyone is welcome!

    Open Your Heart & Home To Foster Children


    Read More
    Last year, nearly 400 children spent time in foster care in Coos County. 66% spent time in more than one foster home. Many were split from their siblings.
    If a natural disaster hit our state and children were wandering the street without someone to care for them, each of us would open our homes to help in the crisis. With more than 350 children currently in foster care and more entering the system every day, we're in the midst of a disaster in our county.
    Oregon's Department of Human Services (DHS) works hard to care for children and families in crisis, but is often left with few resources for volunteer and foster parent recruitment efforts.
    If we don't step in, many children will be left without the care, comfort, and safety of a loving home during times of trauma, transition, and uncertainty. We can do better for Coos County's children. We know that our community want to take action, but they just don't know where to begin. Many of us feel helpless, doing nothing or never considering foster parenting.
    Every Child gathers community members in partnership with Oregon's Department of Human Services (DHS) to aide vulnerable children and families. And by doing so, we're able to bring love, care, and support to vulnerable children and families who previously had nowhere to turn.
    Everyone has something to bring to foster care — be it donating, volunteering or fostering. Go to to learn more

Accepted Shopper Abbreviations  For consistency & clarity in the South Coast Shopper we use a set of standard classified ad abbreviations. They are listed here to help advertisers in writing their ads and readers in understanding the ads. (There is a fee for NOT abbreviating classified ads because our rates are based on these abbreviations)  UPDATE! We use abbreviations to save space in the paper, saving cost, that we pass on to our advertisers with lower classified rates than comparable papers across the Nation. A new way of naming products has developed that make product names unnecessarily longer. We will list these names in the traditional way to continue to save space in the paper, saving cost that we can continue to pass on to our advertisers. Examples: Ranger XLT by Ford would be abbreviated to: Ford Ranger XLT OceanRunner Rainbow Series by WildSeas would be abbreviated to: WildSeas Rainbow OceanRunner In the body of an ad always use numerals. Example: Newer 3bdr home. At the beginning of an ad spell out short numbers. (Example: Three bdr home.) As always, if you do not want your ad abbreviate we can use the longer version for $2.
