I was a VP for National/Alamo Car Rental and actively involved in the Az Governor's Counsel for Domestic Violence and attended numerous meetings with a myriad of different organizations and got to know Stephanie Orr and Casa very well. I felt then and now that Mrs. Orr's agenda at Casa was incredibly pure and that her staff and its work at Casa is and will always be very important. The work done there is so important!!

Sheryl...you cannot imagine how much it means to us to have recieved these great remarks from you about Casa. Your leadership and support of Casa in AZ;particularly in the challenging financial years after Sept 11, 2011 was instrumental in keeping Casa alive! In fact, you and Ginger Clayton and others in the Sunflower Foundation you all estalished must know that if it weren't for you, Casa would not be providing services today.

Casa is a tremendously important organization that does crucial work for the people our community. Most agencies involved in abuse take a reactionary stance as opposed to a proactive stance. Casa is one of the few organizations with a staff that is forward-thinking enough to put time, energy, and resources into education and prevention. As a donor, I feel confident that Casa is making good use of its resources to educate students, teachers, and other community members about building healthy and positive relationships.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Casa's student programs facilitate self-esteem and knowledge about relationships, so that young people can identify whether a relationship is positive or negative. Students can immediately use that knowledge to build healthy relationships.
