A CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) is a specially trained volunteer from the community who is appointed by the Court to represent the best interests of a child that is or could be placed into foster care. The CASA helps insure that the child's right to a safe, permanent home is acted upon in a sensitive and expedient manner and that progress is being made to achieve permanency for the child. CASA acts as the "eyes and the ears of the Court." Appointed by the judge, the CASA does his/her own independent investigation of the facts of the case and reports the facts, along with his/her recommendations, to the Court. The CASA stands as the representative for the child during all court proceedings. For more information contact Lesli Schei at (208) 232-2272 or visit their website at casa6id.org.
