CASA of the Bluegrass


CASA of the Bluegrass utilizes community volunteers to act as Court Appointed Specials Advocates (CASA Volunteers). CASA Volunteers are appointed to serve children who have entered the Family Court System as a result of abuse and/or neglect. They advocate for the best interest of children by completing investigations of the child's situation and offering recommendations concerning the child's needs and future.

It has been proven by studies and statistical data from the National CASA Association (National CASA Organization's Evidence of Effectiveness, www.CASAforChildren.org, 2016) that children who have a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) have better outcomes than children who do not have CASAs.

A child with a CASA volunteer is more likely to find a safe, permanent home:
• More likely to be adopted
• Half as likely to reenter foster care
• Substantially less likely to spend time in long-term foster care
• More likely to have a plan for permanency, especially children of color
• More services are ordered for the children
• Volunteers spend significantly more time with the child than a paid guardian ad litem.
• Children with CASA volunteers spend less time in foster care

Children with CASA volunteers do better in school:
• More likely to pass all courses
• Less likely to have poor conduct in school
• Less likely to be expelled

Children with a CASA volunteer score better on nine protective factors:
• Neighborhood resources, interested adults, sense of acceptance, controls against deviant behavior, models of conventional behavior, positive attitude towards the future, valuing achievement, ability to work with others and ability to work out conflicts.

We need CASA Volunteers first and foremost! Hundreds of children in our region are in need of a voice and the work we do is all volunteer based!
