Welcome to the Northern California Intertribal CASA Program
All children have a right to a home with loving people to care for them. However, each year millions of children are abused, neglected, or abandoned by their families. Today, more than 10,000 American Indian and Alaskan Native children are living in a foster care system through no fault of their own.
Eventually, many of these children end up in court with a judge deciding their future. The information provided by a CASA volunteer helps a judge decide what is in the child’s best interest. The result is that children are placed in safe, loving homes where they can thrive and stay connected to their cultures.
NCI CASA, the first Intertribal CASA program in the nation, supports and promotes court-appointed advocates for abused or neglected children in both state and tribal courts, in order to provide children with a safe and healthy environment in permanent homes.
