On Nov. 15, the volunteers, Carrie Steffensmeier and Caitlin Hickerson were sworn in by Judge John Wooleyhan at the Adams County Courthouse.
CASA volunteers are trained community members appointed by a judge that advocate for abused or neglected children in the court system.
These volunteers receive 30 hours of training, which involves courtroom procedures, working with social service agencies and the special needs of abused and neglected children.
