“Adelante” is our motto. It is a Spanish word which means “go forward”. It is the Chaves County Juvenile Drug Court goal that our participants have the education and skills upon the graduation to go forward with happy productive lives.

“The only person I have to be better than today is the person I was yesterday.”
