Henrico CASA welcomes new volunteers


Henrico County Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) welcomed 11 new advocates earlier this month. The volunteers were sworn into service by Henrico Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court Chief Judge Stuart L. Williams, Jr. April 5.

CASAs gather information to supplement what is already provided to the court to help portray a more complete picture of each child’s circumstances. A child’s future depends on that judge’s decision, and a CASA volunteer helps make sure that decision is in the best interest of the child.

In a room labeled the garden room, a bright space with lavender-colored walls and pebble-gray chairs, art therapist Becky Jacobson might ask her patients to imagine a safe place, but she doesn’t ask them to describe it to her — she wants them to draw it.

The patients are free to draw whatever they envision, expressing themselves through their colored markers, a form of healing through art therapy.

“Some people might not feel safe anywhere because they have had hard things happening to them, and I have the background to help that person reground and feel safe in the group,” Jacobson said.
