Volunteers of America were one of eight presenters Tuesday afternoon at the Legislator Forum held at Sheridan City Hall. VOA President and CEO Jeff Holsinger talked extensively about “Title 25”, which is the emergency detention and involuntary hospitalization of someone who’s mentally ill.

Holsinger also expressed concern how “Title 25” will be funded since it’s been removed from the Wyoming Department of Health budget.

Holsinger said if the $11.2 million is pulled from their budget, it would be “catastrophic for the organization”.
