As a lifelong volunteer, Peg Chassman has spent the majority of her life providing better opportunities for families and children.
As past-president of the YMCA’s Community Initiatives Board, she helped low-income families find work, clothing and better living accommodations. Since 1995, she has been involved with the fourth judicial circuit court’s Guardian ad Litem program, providing a voice in court on behalf of Florida’s abused and neglected children.
Additionally, Peg works with the Diversionary Program mediating civil juvenile cases. Her efforts help prevent these cases from going to court. She also volunteers as a financial qualifier at Volunteers in Medicine, a nonprofit that provides free primary health care to the working uninsured. She has volunteered more than 1,000 hours gathering pertinent information needed so these hard-working individuals receive needed primary care. Peg Chassman has spent her life giving so that others can find a better way to live.
