CASA by the lakes

Each year millions of children are abused, neglected, or abandoned by their families.

These children have a right to a loving home.

Located in the 42nd Judicial District of Kentucky, Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) by the Lakes is a non-profit organization that recruits, trains, and supports quality volunteers whose mission is to advocate for the timely and safe placement of abused and neglected children. CASA volunteers speak for the best interest of children in Dependency, Neglect, and Abuse Court and advocate for each child to have a safe, permanent home. Volunteers also offer encouragement, stability, and hope during a complex and critical time in the lives of these children.

In 2012 our volunteers served 97 children in Calloway and Marshall Counties. Unfortunately, that was only 1/5 of the children in our area who could have benefited from the services of a Court Appointed Special Advocate. Imagine the impact CASA would have if even more volunteers stepped forward!

CASA by the Lakes, Inc. is currently recruiting volunteer advocates. Are you ready to stand up for a child who needs you? Inquire today about the power you have to change a child’s life. New Advocate Training begins soon!
