CASA has tremendous immpact on the lives of countless individuals or all levels throughout the valley: Providing information to individuals and families for greater emotional growth and happiness. I attended a session specifically geared towards educating parents of teens on communicating about sensitive issues. The presenters were well versed and the panel so willing to open up and share to the benefit of those attending. Impactful.

CASA is a much needed and fabulous program touching many people's lives. It's reach is wide but could use much needed funds to increase their visibility in Arizona. The director is very visible and works tirelessly to make sure that the program reaches the vulnerable part of AZ communities.
