Newest Volunteers Sworn Into Program
On May 8th, Chief Judge Jayne Pemberton inducted eleven new volunteers into the CASA program. These individuals completed more than 40 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:
Annual Volunteer Appreciation Party
On December 10th, CASA volunteers, staff, and board members joined together with family to celebrate the season and each other at our annual Holiday Volunteer Appreciation Party. An afternoon of fun, food, and friendship culminated in the recognition ceremony for volunteers being honored for milestone service anniversaries with our program. This dedication is truly remarkable since CASA volunteers are required to invest their time, passion, and heart into advocating for their assigned children. Chesterfield CASA is so grateful to every volunteer who ensures every child finds the safe home and loving family they deserve.
