Organization Information

Mission Statement

Tri County CASA, Kentucky, exists to promote and protect the best interest of children who have been abused or neglected, by training volunteers to advocate for them in courts, in schools, and in our community to help them find safe, permanent and loving homes. We serve Breckinridge, Grayson and Meade Counties.

Description

We serve Breckinridge, Grayson and Meade Counties.

A CASA volunteer is a trained volunteer child advocate sworn in by the Judge to
represent the best interest of children who are abused and neglected and are active
cases in the Breckinridge, Grayson and Meade Juvenile Court System. The CASA
volunteer investigates the child’s circumstances, provides fact-based information
and makes recommendations to the court while becoming a source of support for
the child.
The CASA program is independent, but works closely with the court, social workers,
therapists, attorneys, care providers and other professionals involved in a child’s
case. CASA volunteers work under the direct supervision of the CASA Coordinator
to further the child’s welfare and to expedite the case through the system.
The CASA volunteer’s ultimate goal is to move the child out of temporary
placement, usually in the foster care system, into a safe and permanent home. This
could mean return to the parent’s care, adoption, the appointment of a legal
guardian, or some other permanent living arrangement that satisfies the court and fulfills the child's needs.
