Northeast Arkansas children to benefit from national CASA grants
The Arkansas Court Appointed Special Advocates organization has received two national CASA grants to help children in Northeast Arkansas. The year-long grants start in July and total $70,000. The money will be used to help recruit more CASA volunteers in the region, as well as to help those youth who are close to aging out of the foster care system. KASU's Johnathan Reaves has more in this report.
