The Kalispel Tribe of Indians will use funds to enhance the ability of its CASA Program to effectively advocate in the best interests of abused and neglected children involved in dependency proceedings within the Kalispel Tribal Court and Pend Oreille County Court jurisdictions. Funding will be used to retain the CASA Program Manager; conduct volunteer recruitment, training, and supervision; fundraise and outreach; and all administrative duties. Finally, funding would be used to secure legal counsel and representation for program staff and volunteers appointed to serve children involved in complex legal proceedings that require the support and expertise of a licensed attorney.
