CASA comes into the schools in our precinct and provides education and prevention information to the children. They are prepared to handle situations where children come forward about abuse they are experiencing or have experienced. CASA works with PD to ensure the matters are handled appropriately. They provide a much needed program for children.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Their positive attitude and the service they provide the children.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Very friendly and enthusiastic to do their job.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Make a huge dent in lessening the number of sexual assaults/abuse/etc that our young population experiences as well as help bring to justice those that are currently experiencing abuse.

Casa is an incredible organization that has had a profound impact on the lives of hundreds of our students. As a school counselor in a K -8 Catholic school, it is my responsiblity to provide training to all of our students in the area of child abuse prevention. For the past seven years we have chosen to utilize Casa's Kids Talk program to provide this education to our students. The presentations are presented in an age appropriate and sensitive manner while teaching students appropriate boundaries and assertiveness skills. Every member of the Casa staff has been a joy to work with. They seem to go above and beyond in all that they do. I am very appreciative of this organization and for all that they do to make a positive difference in the lives of both children and adults.

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

my work with students. The students retain the information and skills taught to them in the Kids Talk program. Although it is not measurable, I strongly believe that this educational program has procted students from becoming a victim of abuse.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

thier expertise and one of a kind programs.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

outstanding. They truely believe in the work that they are doing and the lives they are touching.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

make such an incredible difference in the lives of children. They could educate thousands and thousands of children and protect them from the horrendous crime of child sexual abuse.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About once a year
