Volunteers Needed To Review Foster Care Files

FRANKFORT (AP) - Several counties are in need of volunteers to review child foster care records for state courts.

The Kentucky Court of Justice says in a news release that volunteers are needed in Fayette, Jessamine, Madison, Bracken, Campbell, Kenton and Mason counties.

The volunteers review cases of children placed in foster care to ensure they are receiving necessary services and placed in permanent homes as soon as possible. They will become members of the Citizen Foster Care Review Board, which was created by the state Legislature in 1982 as a way to cut the amount of time children spend in foster care.

There are about 800 members of the board statewide.
