Facts about CASA Volunteering
Kentucky CASA provides a large network of support, training and resources to ensure you are well equipped to make a positive and lasting impact in the life of a child.
No Prior Experience
No prior experience is expected or necessary to become a CASA Volunteer. All of the tools one needs to be a successful advocate will be given to them through the training program.
Challenging, but worth it
CASA Volunteering is different from other volunteer opportunities. Every CASA case will be challenging, but you will be able to do more than you ever thought possible in changing the course of a child's life.
Become part of a community
Becoming a CASA Volunteer means entering into a community of knowledgeable and empowered volunteers who will support and encourage you at all times.
No other volunteer opportunity is as potentially life-changing for you and a child in need than being a CASA Volunteer. Not only will you make a lasting impact in the life of a child, but you will also find the experience extremely rewarding.

We need you to help us grow.
Across the state, 980 CASA Volunteers currently serve 3,069 children in Kentucky. But with an estimated 26,148 children in need of a CASA across the state every year, that means 23,079 are still in need. With your help, we can begin to close that gap.
Each CASA program professionally trains and carefully screens volunteers to become Court Appointed Special Advocates for abused and neglected children in juvenile court. These volunteers represent the best interests of the child with the goal of securing a safe, permanent home.
