Volunteers Needed in 24 Kentucky Counties to Review Cases of Children in Foster Care

Citizen Foster Care Review Boards in 24 Kentucky counties are seeking volunteers to make a difference in the lives of local children in foster care and other out-of-home care. The boards need volunteers to review cases of children placed in care because of dependency, neglect or abuse, to ensure they are placed in safe, permanent homes as quickly as possible. Volunteers are not required to live in the counties in need. The court-appointed volunteer reviewers help ensure that children receive the necessary services while in out-of-home care and are ultimately placed in permanent homes. All volunteers must complete a six-hour initial training session. Potential volunteers are encouraged to apply as soon as possible so then can be screened, and if approved, scheduled for training in their area. Training sessions are scheduled for September 21, 2018 in Elizabethtown and October 25, 2018 in Bowling Green. The counties in need of volunteers are Allen, Barren, Breckinridge, Butler, Caldwell, Calloway, Christian, Crittenden, Fulton, Graves, Grayson, Green, Hardin, Hart, Hickman, LaRue, Livingston, Logan, Lyon, Marshall, McLean, Todd, Trigg and Warren. Volunteers are not required to live in these counties.
