About CASA of Northeast Oklahoma

On March 5, 1995, Ryan Luke, a little boy from McAlester, Oklahoma, died from a child abuse-related head injury. Oklahomans were outraged. Many galvanized their outrage into movements to help children.

It was no different in Rogers, Mayes, Craig, Ottawa, Delaware, and Washington Counties. In memory of Ryan Luke, a group of concerned citizens wanted to ensure that children had trained citizen advocates who would visit them in person regularly and speak up when a child's best interests were not being honored. They decided to start a court-appointed special advocate program and Tri-County CASA began serving the 12th Judicial District which includes Rogers, Mayes, and Craig Counties.
