TWELVE COMMUNITY volunteers were recently sworn in by Superior Court judges in Cumberland, Gloucester and Salem Counties to serve as advocates to ensure the best interests of abused and neglected children are met. These volunteers have completed the necessary 30 hours of pre-service training with CASA of Cumberland, Gloucester and Salem Counties and are now ready to be assigned to their first case. They join the growing number of advocates at CASA of CGS who are currently serving nearly 400 children. In Cumberland, Gloucester and Salem Counties, there were over 1400 children who could have been served with an advocate over the last year. Above is Cumberland, from left: Lisa Shelton, the Hon. Michael R. Ostrowski, Jr., Lea DeStefanis, Monica Mason, and Wanda Otero; top right, Salem advocates: Devon Sprague, Jodi-Lynn Mareno and Aimee Jason, with the Hon. Jean S. Chetney.
