I have been a CASA volunteer for more that 5 years. This has been one of the most rewarding endeavors I have experienced. The staff is very helpful when you have questions. Training opportunities are avaliable on a regular basis.
It can be dishearting to see what some children have to endure. It certainly has opened my eyes.
To know I have helped improve a child’s life and to be a source of stability at probably the most tumultuous time he/she will experience provides a satisfaction beyond description. I would encourage anyone to consider becoming a CASA
I am new to this program but the more I see the more I want to be involved! The leaders are great and full of info and are there for all the right reasons. I am so excited to give to the families in need and only hope I can be as good as the others before me!
I started as a volunteer in this CASA Program in 2000. Being an advocate for abused and neglected children in South Central Idaho has given me a chance to give back to my community and make a difference in the lives of these children, one at a time. Our Program is appointed by a judge to every child protection case and we stay with these kids until they are returned to their parents or find a safe and permanent home. I have seen the growth of this Program these past 11 years. Today, we advocate for over 300 children currently involved in child protection cases in our district. We do make a difference and give these chiildren a voice in court.
