On average the Judicial District VII CASA Program receives appointments to 145 new children each year. Judicial District VII is the largest district in Idaho; it is made up of Bingham, Bonneville, Butte, Clark, Custer, Fremont, Jefferson, Lemhi, Madison, and Teton Counties. The Idaho Falls Rotary Club would like to help CASA fulfill their mission to serve the great need in Eastern Idaho through this grant.
Funding for this grant could help community members and Rotarians become trained and certified volunteers to the CASA program. The Idaho Falls Rotary Club plans to help the CASA program achieve their goal to recruit and train 30 new CASA volunteers in the next fiscal year.
The Idaho Falls Rotary Club is committed to helping spread the word about the volunteer opportunities available for our members to join with CASA to help improve the welfare of some of our community's most at-risk youth.
The Idaho Falls Rotary Club has become a CASA partner. Working alongside the Idaho Falls Rotary Club, District VII CASA joins the Idaho Falls Duck Race, a major project for the club and the community. Rotary members work with CASA to provide an opportunity for CASA to further their mission through information to the community, fundraising in the community at one of the area's major events, among other things.
The funds would be utilized as soon as they are received, with training and implementation completed within a year of receipt of grant monies. Sign up and information to Rotarians about volunteer opportunities and club goals begin upon funding.
