CAFCA Briefed On NEON Matter

Late Friday came word that the state Department of Correction was ending its contract with a Norwalk-based anti-poverty agency to run a halfway house.

State Department of Social Services Commissioner Roderick Bremby went so far as to call Norwalk Economic Opportunity Now–NEON–an agency in crisis.

Meantime, the Connecticut Association for Community Action has been briefed on the matter.

CAFCA  executive director Edith Karsky says the problems began with a merger between NEON and another agency.

Karsky says there were budget discrepancies that cropped up during an audit following the merger.

Karsky says NEON’s other clients will continue to receive services, which include energy assistance, head start, and meals on wheels.
