12 KIDS IN 12 DAYS!
CASA of Southwest Idaho exists to serve children who have been abused and neglected and are placed in foster care. We come alongside children 0-18 years old to provide best-interest advocacy through a caring and invested CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) volunteer the entire time a child is in care.
In order to serve every single child in foster care here in Southwest Idaho this year, we need 61 more CASA volunteers! If you have 8 hours a month to bring hope to a child, we'd love to meet with you! We provide extensive training and support so you can truly champion children who need your voice.
STORY OF THE DAY: YOUR GIFT IS HIS SAFE AND LOVING HOME
Today was the official adoption day for David. He was excited, but he was also a bit confused. He would have a new last name.
When his parents were meeting with the attorney, David came and sat with me. He asked me to take him into the courtroom when it was time. I realized at that moment that I was the person David has known the longest. I have been his Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) since his first birthday and we just celebrated his fourth birthday.
There are some happy and rewarding moments to this work. David is safe. He has a family. He gets to grow up in a loving and happy home. It costs about $100 a month to advocate for a child in Idaho. Please give generously so boys like David can have someone by their side in the courtroom elevating their voice and their needs! Every foster child needs a CASA!
