We have verified now that Kimmer aka Heidi Diaz is NOT a C.A.S.A in Riverside County, CA.
We spoke with the directors of BOTH Riverside County CASA outlets and neither of them have a Heidi Diaz registered with them. Barbara at the Riverside Satellite Office was WELL AWARE of the Heidi / Kimmer issues, having already received several phone calls about her and verified that Heidi WAS at one point, years ago, a CASA, but has not been for quite some time.
If anyone has any information as to monies sent to Kimmer for foster children (address where checks were sent, paypal account names, check endorsements [who signed the check and cashed it?]) and any other relevant info, please contact Barbara here:

Kimmer.. you're busted.
Edited to add the following:
Just for the sake of clarification, here is Kimmer's bio from the KK website - as of today, 08/27/2007
"Kimmer lost an amazing 198 pounds in 11 months and shared her simple secret with thousands of overweight people in various internet forums for over 5 years. In March 2006 Kimkins.com was born to facilitate spreading the word that there’s a faster way to lose weight than with traditional diets. Kimmer personally answers weight loss questions from members in the “Kimkins Cafe” forum. She earned a graduate degree in Public Administration and serves as a volunteer Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) for abused children."
"Serves" is present tense, not past. The KK site was not in existence "several years ago" so the excuse that it hasn't been updated will not work here.
