General

  • Mission:
  • To raise our voices against violence through advocacy, empowerment, and social change.

  • Overview:
  • CASA's target populations are victims of domestic violence and their children. We offer a continuum of services to include emergency shelter, outreach, support groups, legal advocacy, and prevention services.

    During 2015, CASA upsized their emergency shelter from 30-beds to 100-beds. Additionally, primary prevention is offered in pre-K to high school classrooms, training for community professionals, assistance to locate and connect with community resources for our survivors, support groups in the community, justice and child protection advocacy, rapid rehousing, and training for health care, law enforcement and other professionals.

  • History:
  • Community Action Stops Abuse, Inc. (CASA) is a nonprofit organization, and has provided safety and sanctuary to survivors of domestic violence and their children. No discrimination is made with regard to income, race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, or marital status. CASA does not have any religious affiliation. The goal of CASA's programs is to reduce the incidence of domestic violence by providing families with adequate resources for safety and a realistic safety plan.

    We are a respected leader against domestic violence, being one of the first in the state. We were also one of the first domestic violence centers to recognize the connection between addictions and domestic violence, to serve battered women in jail, to provide visitation centers, to provide specialized outreach to underserved populations, and to work toward social change by implementing training for youth to include bullying awareness, race and gender awareness, being kind to the earth, using peaceful words, and managing conflict.
