CASA Organizational Structure

CASA of South Central KY

CASA of South Central KY is a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Organization. We have a full-time staff of 6, which includes our Executive Director, 4 full-time Advocate Coordinators, and 1 full-time Advocate Development Specialist.

We currently serve Barren, Hart, Metcalfe, and Warren Counties.  These are the court systems that we serve – Volunteer Advocates can be from any county – they would just need to be able to attend court hearings in the county where their case is being heard.

The Kentucky CASA Network is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, governed by a board of directors, providing ongoing development, training, technical assistance, and resources to local CASA programs across the Commonwealth. Currently, the Kentucky CASA Network is an association of 23 local programs, covering more than half of all Kentucky counties, which served 3,574 abused and neglected children in 2020. The KCN also advocates for the needs of CASA programs with industry stakeholders in the Capitol and throughout the state. In 2020, the Kentucky Legislature allocated $1.5 million in FY’21 to be distributed to local CASA programs in the form of grants through the Justice and Public Safety Cabinet. The KCN, as well as all local CASA programs, are governed by the Kentucky Revised Statutes (KRS).

For more than 35 years, the National CASA/GAL Association for Children has worked in service of the national network of CASA/GAL programs. They are headquartered in Seattle, Washington, with offices in the District of Columbia and Atlanta, Georgia.

They provide the following for member programs:
  1. Training and Curriculum
