Dear Friends and Supporters of The Sixth Judicial District CASA Program:

Welcome to our website. I would like to thank you for looking into what our agency provides to the children and families throughout the Sixth Judicial District. The Sixth Judicial District CASA Program was created in 1989 in Pocatello and serves all six counties in the district. The duties, rights and powers of the Guardian ad Litem or CASA are governed by the Idaho Child Protective Act, specifically 16-1633 and 16-1634. Idaho Juvenile Rule 35 also outlines the purpose, function and responsibilities of the volunteer. Guardians ad Litem are appointed to a case as outlined in Idaho Code section 16-1614. The Sixth Judicial District Program is a private non-profit 501 (c) 3 agency governed by an independent board of directors.

The Sixth Judicial District CASA Program recognizes the importance of volunteers serving children in our communities. Guardians ad Litem (GALs), also known as Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA), provide community volunteer advocacy for abused and neglected children pursuant to Idaho statute. After a thorough investigation, the GAL volunteer prepares a report outlining the history of the case, the services that are available for the child and family, and ultimately, makes a recommendation about what is in the best interests of the child. Our judges use this and other information to make an informed decision and create better outcomes for abused and/or neglected children across Idaho.

The Board of Directors and Staff of the Sixth Judicial District CASA Program are committed to providing our children and families with high standards of professionalism, both in the courtroom and with the services we provide. We are proud of the work we do and continually strive for improvement.

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website and for your interest in our program.

 400,000 children in America are still waiting for their CASA volunteer. Waiting for that one trusted adult who will stick with them until their case is resolved. Waiting because today CASA for Children can serve only 35% of the children in the foster care system.
