Mission Statement CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) of Madison County, KY is a non-profit organization advocating for the best interests of abused and neglected children as assigned within the Madison County Family Court System and through trained volunteers. In addition to providing a voice for children in need of safe, permanent, nurturing homes, CASA works to break the cycle of child abuse and neglect in collaboration with key agencies, legal counsel and community resources.
CASA volunteers are appointed by judges to watch over and advocate for abused and neglected children, to make sure they don’t get lost in the overburdened legal and social service system or languish in inappropriate group or foster homes. Volunteers stay with each case until it is closed and the child is placed in a safe, permanent home. For many abused children, their CASA volunteer will be the one constant adult presence in their lives.
Independent research has demonstrated that children with a CASA volunteer are substantially less likely to spend time in long-term foster care and less likely to reenter care.
