Guest: Leah Varnell, Executive Direction, CASA of Jefferson & Gilpin Counties April is Child Abuse Prevention Month.  Casa is Court Appointed Special Advocates that works with children who are in the court system because of abuse.  The advocate is a voice for the child and the eyes and ears for the court to make sure the child/children are safe. Last year the volunteers served 400 children.  They have a new program that helps to emancipated foster youth.  They also have a new program called Youth Alliance, helps to provide affordable housing and wrap around services and coaching.  This program helps to transition foster youth into a positive place in their adult lives.  https://www.coloradocasa.org/
