CASA of the Bluegrass utilizes community volunteers to act as Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASAs). CASA Volunteers are appointed to serve children who have entered the Family Court System because of abuse, neglect, or dependency. They advocate for the best interest of children by gathering information of the child’s situation and offering recommendations concerning the child’s needs and future. Appointed and empowered directly by the courts, CASA Volunteers advocate for a child’s best interest by providing critical information to judges about the child’s needs and well-being to help the judge make the most well-informed decision.

For additional information and to inquire about donations or becoming a volunteer, please contact Casey Atwood, 859.936.3510 or
