Lincoln County CASA
The CASA for Kids Inc., Lincoln County program was originally established in November of 2018. Most recently the program has seen a change in leadership. Sean Carlin was instrumental in initially getting the program off the ground and running. Now, Janelle Lacefield is the director of Lincoln County CASA as of January 2022.
Janelle has been a resident of Lincoln County for over 12 years. Her strong belief in the community brought her to CASA over a year ago. She has her Masters degree in Public Administration from Eastern Washington University and has a background in policy and program development. She has also had several years of experience as being a recruiter and working in human resources. It is her goal to continue the mission of CASA in Lincoln County by bringing her knowledge of program development, and to continue to build the CASA program throughout the entire county.
