Join us in serving Jefferson, Bullitt, Henry, Oldham, Shelby, Spencer, and Trimble Counties and become an advocate for these vulnerable children who need you more than ever.
Child abuse and neglect cases have been on the rise, and the demand for CASA volunteers has never been more critical. These innocent children are caught in the midst of a complex child welfare system, often lacking the consistent support they desperately need. But you can be their answer. You can ensure that every child feels valued and supported.
Court Appointed Special Advocates are volunteers appointed by judges to advocate for children in the court system who have experienced abuse and neglect. These dedicated individuals get to know the children personally, understand their unique needs, and tirelessly work to ensure their best interests are at the forefront of court decisions. By serving as a consistent and caring presence, CASA volunteers can make a profound difference in these children's lives, helping them find safety, stability, and a chance for a brighter future.
At CASA of the River Region, we understand that people lead busy lives, and we want to make the training process as accessible as possible. That's why we offer monthly training sessions that you can attend either in-office or online. These comprehensive training sessions equip you with the knowledge and skills needed to navigate the complexities of child welfare cases effectively. Whether you're a working professional or a stay-at-home parent, you can be a CASA volunteer and create a positive impact in a child's life.
