Judi's Place for Kids is making sure that abused children in our community have access to quality services close to home – with locations in Pikeville and Prestonsburg. Our CASA of Eastern Kentucky program recruits, screens, and trains and supervises volunteers to advocate for a child's best interest in the court, the school, and the community. Our Children's Advocacy Center program provides professional services to help a child tell their story and find safety and healing through mutiple professionals working together. Almost 400 children benefitted from these services last year.
But with hundreds of petitions filed in family court to protect children from abuse and neglect in Pike, Floyd, Johnson, Martin, and Magoffin Counties, there is much more to do. Child abuse is constantly in the news. And with the opioid crisis, even more children in our neighborhoods are vulnerable to abuse and neglect.
