Friday, Oct 2, 2020

Fox 4 journalist Sheraw Honeycutt recently interviewed Program Director Amorita Johnson. Here is an excerpt:

Amorita Johnson, program director of CASA of Wyandotte & Johnson Counties, said for children experiencing abuse, being back in front of people could be a lifeline.

“I’ve never experienced anything quite like this because we’ve always had the resources like teachers, doctors, pediatricians and things to lay eyes on the children … When that all shut down, everyone was sheltering at home,” Johnson said. “It was devastating. It was frightening.”

“We’ve already to start seeing them come in, the reports of abuse and neglect,” Johnson said.
