CASA Is Helping To Change A Child’s Story In Connecticut

As we speak, in February, 2020, more than 4 thousand children in Connecticut from birth to age 18 are in foster care. The current opioid epidemic has greater fueled this crisis. Children need advocates, someone to help speak for them, in the legal system, and that’s where CASA comes in. CASA stands for “Court Appointed Special Advocates.” This is a national organization, but it’s just landing in Connecticut. Hundreds of volunteers, selfless men and women, are needed for these kids caught in turmoil. On NYBERG, we talk to the newly appointed Executive Director for Southern Connecticut, Josiah Brown.
