Neal named McCracken County as one of those most in need of volunteers, along with Anderson, Barren, Bell, Bourbon, Boyd, Boyle, Breathitt, Bullitt, Calloway, Carter, Casey, Christian, Clark, Clay, Clinton, Daviess, Fayette, Floyd, Franklin, Graves, Hardin, Harlan, Henderson, Hopkins, Jefferson, Jessamine, Laurel, Letcher, Lincoln, Madison, Magoffin, Nelson, Oldham, Owsley, Perry, Pike, Pulaski, Rockcastle, Russell, Scott, Shelby, Spencer, Taylor, Whitley, and Wolfe.
Volunteers don't have to live in the county of the board they serve. They all must consent to a criminal record and central registry check and complete an initial six hour training session. Afterwards, appointment recommendations are made to the chief judge of the district court or family court.
The state CFCRB was created by the general assembly in 1982 to help decrease the time kids spend in foster care. Neal said potential volunteers are encouraged to apply as soon as possible so they can be scheduled for training.
