BE A VOICE.VOLUNTEER.

CASA volunteers are ordinary people who are caring, honest, and committed to doing what is best for a child. No special experience or knowledge is required. All volunteers are trained to understand  courtroom procedure, social services, the basics of the juvenile justice system, and the special needs of children who have been abused and neglected.

Kate, 5

Adam, 16

In a year, 5-year-old Kate has been in six different homes through no fault of her own. She entered foster care after her mother was sent to jail. Kate is a happy child, but the lack of a stable home is having an emotional impact. Without a permanent home, Kate may not be able to form healthy relationships. Her CASA is there to make sure she finds a stable home before its too late.

A new volunteer took on his first case serving a teen boy.  Adam suffered extensive abuse and neglect and has a long history of status offenses, behavioral issues in school, and many have simply given up on him.  His CASA was committed to hanging in there for the long haul. Ray has gone above and beyond in assisting this youth to get an ID so that he could keep his first job at Jimmy Johns.

Volunteer-20 years

Kent Blake

Board Chair, 2014-15

Janie has been a CASA volunteer for over 20 years. She says, "the greatest joy of being a CASA for so long is seeing my former CASA children grow up. I have seen my former children go on and be the first person from their family to graduate from high school. I have even seen some graduate from college. Seeing my former children succeed is why I am still a CASA."

Kent Blake, LG&E-KU Chief Financial Officer, began on CASA’s board in 2008 & rose to Board Chair in 2013. His term ended in February, 2017 and we want to thank him for leading CASA onto a new path of growth. Through his leadership, CASA has experienced: 41% increase in overall assets; 50% increase in grants & contributions; 128% increase in event income; 15% annual growth of Embrace A Child members.
