The proven CASA model was praised by Nicholas Kristof in a November 2020 New York Times column; he wrote: “CASA…Volunteers provide support and advocacy for children who sometimes have no one else to trust, while helping them navigate the bureaucracy.” (He has included the CASA model among those endorsed at KristofImpact.org.)

Ronald Perry, a retired New Haven police officer who lives in Middletown and works against human trafficking, has joined six other new board members at CASA of Southern Connecticut.

CASA of Southern Connecticut's Ambassadors, Miye Oni and Brandon Sherrod, are featured for their commitment to the CASA movement--and how men (as well as women) can get involved as volunteers for children, in the New Haven Register and Connecticut Post.

For Domestic Violence Awareness and Substance Abuse Prevention month, Josiah Brown of CASA of Southern Connecticut discusses the CASA movement and year-round need for volunteers--in the New Haven Register and Connecticut Post.
