We are an independent non-profit organization who represents the best interests of children in Foster Care. We train, mentor, and support volunteers who serve as advocates for these children. Our goal is for these children to thrive in safe, nurturing, and permanent homes.
Here at CASA of Southwest Idaho, we believe in being a voice for the voiceless. As one of many CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) organizations throughout the nation, we are the only party in a case whose sole responsibility is to speak up for foster children's best interests. As a result, when a Volunteer CASA steps in to investigate and speak up for children in care, children are twice as likely to be placed in a permanent, safe home at the end of their case. They are also eight times more likely to graduate high school, and 42% less likely to enter juvenile detention. We are determined to help our community's vulnerable children succeed in Canyon, Gem, Owyhee, Payette, Washington, and Adams Counties.
