Family Advocates is a private, independent 501 (c)(3) non-profit agency founded in 1978 and serving Southwest Idaho. Our founders, two foster families (the Hogins and the Murphys), saw the great need to keep children out of the foster system and they established a long-term vision of seeing the end of child abuse in Idaho. Family Advocates was incorporated in Boise on September 28, 1978.
The CASA Program began late in 1980, when the Junior League, the Boise Bar Association, and Family Advocates received permission from the Honorable Richard Grant, Juvenile Magistrate, to initiate a pilot Guardian ad Litem program in Ada County. In 1982, the CASA Program officially accepted its first child protection referral and, in 1986, Family Advocates, including attorney Eric Haff, took an active role in working with legislators to revise the Child Protection Act to clearly define the role of a Guardian ad Litem (GAL). The CASA Program at Family Advocates serves children in the Fourth Judicial District (Ada, Boise, Elmore, and Valley Counties).
Keeping families healthy, stable, and preventing child abuse from ever happening, was the foundation of the Family Advocates’ mission. This vision of child abuse prevention has evolved from a volunteer-based Home Visiting Program to our current Family Strengthening Program. The Family Strengthening Program includes best practices and theories of modern day and has expanded out from Boise to include Caldwell, Mountain Home, and Garden City.
