CASA of Lexington’s trained and supervised volunteers advocate through the family court system to ensure all victims of child abuse and neglect are provided a safe and permanent home.
CASA of Lexington hosts several events throughout the year! These events include Bourbon and the Bayou, Camp CASA, the CASA Superhero Run, and more! All proceeds directly support providing CASA advocates to abused and neglected children.
Whether it’s a monetary donation or the gift of your time, your support makes a difference! It costs about $1000 to fund one CASA advocate for an entire year. Your donations along with others can make an incredible difference in a child’s life.
