Connecticut CASA and the COVID-19 Response Efforts
We are living through unprecedented times that are changing the daily lives of everyone across not only the country but the world.
Although many offices are closed or are modifying how they handle daily life, the DCF Careline for reporting concerns about abuse or neglect is available at: 800-842-2288
It is important to remember that the vast majority of children who are in need of our help often got these resources at school. With schools closed it is more crucial than ever before to do our best to help families and children responsibly, where ever we can.
