They are Heather Abraham, Roma Andreuzzi, Richard Ballina, Suzanne Barber, Angela Bergman, Amanda Bernard, Linda Diss, Robert Donley, Suzanne Kerlin and Amy Kolling.

CASA of Westmoreland Inc. is a volunteer-based organization that works on behalf of abused and neglected children by assisting the courts to ensure a child is placed in a safe, permanent and nurturing home.
The volunteers collaborate with a variety of service providers.
Volunteers attend a 10-week, 30-hour training curriculum developed by the national CASA organization.
This is the program's 13th graduating class.
