Charity Alpert serves as the new Executive Director of CASA of the River Region. She has been with the program since its infancy, attending the first training class of volunteer advocates. She completed her first case in August of 2020. In her role as director, Charity leads a team of trained community volunteers who serve as Court Appointed Special Advocates in the Juvenile Court system, where they advocate for the best interests of abused and neglected children.
Charity was born and raised in Montgomery, AL and has had a deep passion for the welfare of children for over 25 years. After earning an Associate’s degree in Childhood Education from Bethany Divinity College, she served in various capacities in the community from volunteer to paid positions within the childcare field. In the business world, Charity managed a court reporting firm in Montgomery for 15 years, developing professional relationships in the legal community. She attended training through the National Court Reporters Association and became a Certified Manager of Reporting Services in 2002. Since 2011, Charity has served in the nonprofit sector, in various capacities. It was her work with an orphanage that ignited her passion for meeting the needs of abused and neglected children. She began orphan advocacy training with CAFO (Christian Alliance For Orphans) and ultimately began the process of adopting a child into her own family.
Charity’s background in business, nonprofit sector work, and childhood advocacy brings the perfect balance to this program.
