Dozens of Counties Looking for Foster Care Review Board Volunteers


Volunteers for foster care review boards are needed in at least three dozen counties across the commonwealth. 

State law mandates that there be at least three volunteers on each board, although more are often needed due to heavy caseloads. Dolores Smith, with the state’s Department of Family and Juvenile Services, says the goal of the boards is to find a safe, permanent home for children placed in foster care.

Counties in need of volunteers are Adair, Barren, Bath, Bourbon, Boyd, Bracken, Bullitt, Butler, Carter, Christian, Clark, Edmonson, Elliott, Fayette, Fleming, Grayson, Hardin, Hart, Jefferson, Jessamine, LaRue, Lewis, Logan, Madison, Marion, Mason, Menifee, Morgan, Ohio, Scott, Simpson, Taylor, Todd, Trigg, Warren and Washington.

Volunteers are not required to live in those counties to participate. You can find a link to more information about the foster care review boards and how to volunteer at http://courts.ky.gov/courtprograms/cfcrb/Pages/default.aspx
