FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky officials say they are seeking volunteers to serve on citizen foster care review boards in 71 counties.

A statement from the Administrative Office of the Courts says the boards need volunteers to review cases of children placed in care to ensure they are placed in safe, permanent homes as quickly as possible.

Volunteers aren’t required to live in the counties where they review cases, but they are required to go through a training session.

Officials say the next training sessions are set for July 14 in Perry County, July 21 in Christian County, Aug. 18 in Rowan County, Sept. 15 in Hardin County and Oct. 6 in Fayette County.

All volunteers also must apply and pass a background check before being recommended for appointment on a board.
