About

Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) for Children, a volunteer-powered network of committed people--from all walks of life--who believe society has a fundamental obligation to children who have been abused and neglected. CASA volunteers are appointed to advocate for the best interest of a child involved in the legal system. We are everyday citizens who get to know the child, are given access to investigate all aspects of the case, and then speak up for the child in court. CASA volunteers are assigned one case at a time, allowing for concentrated attention and advocacy. We are people just like you who believe that every child has the right to be treated with dignity, to be safe, and to thrive in the embrace of a loving family. Kenai Peninsula CASA is a partnership between Kenaitze Indian Tribe and the Office of Public Advocacy. This unique partnership allows children in both tribal and state courts to benefit from having a CASA volunteer. All of our CASA volunteers are dual trained in both tribal court and state court. This partnership allows us to service more children and allows CASA volunteers to, if necessary, follow a child between tribal and state court systems.
