Insight From CASA of SOLA in the Wake of Netflix Documentary
The Trials of Gabriel Hernandez sheds light on a broken system that was created to help kids. The Netflix documentary explores the death of an 8-year-old boy in Los Angeles that should have been prevented. Department of Child and Family Services social workers missed a ton of warning signs and were eventually charged in his death for their own negligence.
We wanted to know more about the system here at home. CASA of SOLA supports foster children and others in the system within the 15th JDC (Lafayette Parish, Vermilion Parish, and Acadia Parish). Cade Turner joined us to talk about the challenges and lack of resources to support these kids in our area.
