Idaho Delegate

Cassidy Littleton

Cassidy Littleton hails from Twin Falls, ID – a small farming town in the southern
region of the state. She grew up in a large family, with four older siblings and one younger, and was placed in the foster care system twice: once at age 11 and once at age 14. She also endured the loss of an older brother during her first entrance in the system after he aged out and committed suicide. Despite the adversity, she went on to earn a
bachelor’s degree in Public Relations & Communications through Boise State University.

Cassidy has used her experiences in foster care to advocate for child welfare improvements
and was able to do this in a variety of roles, including the 2017-2018 Pacific Region
Youth of the Year for Boys & Girls Clubs of America, gubernatorial intern for Idaho
Governor Brad Little, guest lecturer at University of Maryland, and foster care educator
with the Department of Health & Welfare. She continues to serve with various organizations that focus on foster care and child welfare.

Cassidy is an active Guardian ad Litem with CASA, a member of the Idaho Supreme Court’s Child Welfare Committee, and Treasurer & Co-Founder of the Hope for Foster Youth Housing Foundation. Her goal is to continue building on a legacy of advocacy for former foster youth and pursue a career in politics with the aim of improving outcomes for all children and young adults.
