CAS Presenter: CAS is trying to change our image to a more positive one. For instance: If a mother is having her children apprehended because of a lack of heat in the home, we’re doing our best to give her the option of where the children go. To an aunt’s, or a good friend – that type of thing.
Angela: If the only problem in the home is the parent’s inability to pay the heating bill, wouldn’t it make more sense – both monitarily and for permanency of the child – to pay her $100+ a month heating bill rather than spending $1800+ a month to put the children in care?
CAS Presenter: Uh…
This is why my days with CAS are numbered.
