CASA for Children
The Kentucky CASA Network
Every day in this country, 1,900 children become victims of abuse or neglect, and four of them will die. Every day. Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) for Children is a network of 933 community-based programs that recruit, train and support citizen-volunteers to advocate for the best interests of abused and neglected children in courtrooms and communities. Volunteer advocates—empowered directly by the courts—offer judges the critical information they need to ensure that each child’s rights and needs are being attended to while in foster care and in the Family Court System. Volunteers stay with children until they are placed in loving permanent homes. For many abused children, a CASA volunteer is the only constant adult presence in their lives.
By selecting to Run For CASA, you are ensuring that more children throughout the Commonwealth of Kentucky will have access to a CASA Volunteer who will speak up for them! Make the difference in the life of a child- one step at a time.
