On today's "The Extra", we’re talking to CASA of the Pikes Peak Region, a local nonprofit that works to advocate for victims of child abuse and neglect. Child abuse was already a crisis before the pandemic, and now it’s an even bigger crisis. This morning, we’re going to be touch on how CASA helps kids, how COVID-19 has affected their mission, and what community members can do to pitch in. Our guests are Angela Rose who is the Executive Director of our local CASA Program and Howard Black who is on the Board of Directors at CASA, previously the Public Information Officer for the Colorado Springs Police Department. More information at casappr.org. More information about their virtual informational classes for volunteers can be found at this link..
