CASA members graduate

Hanover County’s newest class of Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) was sworn in by Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court Judge Shannon O. Hoehl on April 24. The newest CASA members are Mollie Anderson, Cheryl Collie, Paula Dove, Betsy Farley, Sandy Flick, Pam Flippin, Andrea Jones and Nellie League. CASA volunteers advocate for the interests of abused and neglected children who are involved in cases being heard by the Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court. Last year, 32 children were served by 15 volunteers who contributed nearly 1,100 hours. Each new CASA volunteer received about 43 hours of intensive, specialized training that will enable them to speak for children and seek the best outcome for them. They also receive about 12 hours of in-service training a year.
