Since 1984, CASA of the River Region has trained and paired volunteers to be the voice for abused and neglected children in Family Court. CASA serves children in Jefferson, Henry, Oldham, Shelby, Spencer, and Trimble counties.
There are over 3,800 children in Family Court annually in CASA’s six-county service area. We believe children need at least one caring, consistent adult to look out for their safety and nurture their self-worth. CASA is here to ensure vulnerable children’s voices are heard.

CASA supports & promotes court-appointed volunteer advocacy for abused and neglected children so that they can thrive in safe, permanent homes.
