CASA of Northeast Ky, Inc. was started in 2000 by the Honorable George Davis, III and Foster Care Review Board Chair Christy Reaves.
The legal community embraced the program by donating office space, equipment and supplies to get the program operational. National CASA approved membership and awarded the first operational grant, and staff was hired. Many community members volunteered in an advisory capacity serving on the Board of Directors and various committees.
Today, we are self-sufficient through various fundraisers and grants.
We employ 2 full-time staff, and utilize work study programs through local colleges and universities while also accepting practicum students for their coursework requirements.
We are a United Way agency, and feel very fortunate to have the community and judicial support needed to sustain the program in a very overburdened non-profit world all these years later. We are grateful for the support of our local foundations such as Foundation for the Tri State, Mansbach, Steven Salyers, Billy Ray Cyrus, and OLBH who have remained consistent sources of support since our inception.
