“Andrea is a rock star chamber director and has strong ties to the Lincoln County community,” said Melynda Jamison, Executive Director of the CASA program. “We work hard to ensure every community served by CASA has a voice on the board and we are thrilled to have added Andrea as the Lincoln County representative.”

Miller will help guide the CASA’s financial planning and overall vision for the nonprofit’s direction. In Lincoln County, CASA is seeking new CASA volunteers for dozens of abused and neglected children who could benefit from having an advocate for their best interests.

Anyone who is interested in becoming a CASA volunteer or wants more information about the program can email lincolncounty@casaoflexington.org or call (859) 246-4313.

Miller’s term lasts through June 2024.

CASA of Lexington’s trained and supervised volunteers advocate through the family court systems in Bourbon, Fayette, Garrard, Jessamine, Lincoln, Scott and Woodford counties to ensure all victims of child abuse and neglect are safe and thrive in a permanent home. Changes such as where the child lives or goes to school, changes in social workers, teachers and friends, as well as the uncertainty of what life holds, can be very overwhelming for these children.  The CASA volunteer is there to help recognize what the child needs, work to minimize these detrimental changes, and advocate for positive changes for the child’s future.
