Newest Volunteers Sworn Into Program
On May 16th, Chief Judge Jayne Pemberton inducted seven new volunteers into the CASA program. These individuals completed 38 hours of training and courtroom observation prior to being sworn in as child advocates. At the induction ceremony, Judge Pemberton thanked the volunteers for the critical difference they will make in this community by providing a voice for CASA's children. Following the ceremony, CASA staff were able to welcome friends and family of our newest volunteers and celebrate this milestone. We look forward to many years working alongside these volunteers as they provide a powerful voice for their assigned CASA children.


Congratulations to our newest advocates:
Makeda Carr
Dana Dore
