Citizen Foster Care Review Boards in Kentucky are looking for volunteers to review foster care cases in 37 counties. Volunteers help to review files on children placed in out-of-home care and work with the cabinet and courts on behalf of foster children.
Some of the counties in our listening area in need of volunteers include Barren, Butler, Edmonson, Grayson, Hardin, Logan, Muhlenberg, Simpson, Taylor, and Warren. Volunteers don't have to live in those counties.
Delores Smith, a regional supervisor with the Department of Family and Juvenile Services, said volunteers ensure children receive necessary services while in out-of-home care.
“Often times these children’s voices would go unheard if it wasn’t for the Citizen Foster Care volunteers advocating for their needs and for permanency.” Smith said.
