I had the privilege of working for Casa for 11 years. I loved this job more than any other I have ever had and, as I get older, realize that I will be lucky to get even close to level of satisfaction I had helping children, teachers, parents, and community members in Arizona as a Casa employee during the rest of my professional life. Casa's programs, simply put, work. They are built on the principle of fostering healthy relationships and educating both youth and adults on the necessity of understanding how our actions affect one another. i cannot think of a better organization to support as they lead our city in the struggle to end abuse and relationship violence.

As a Casa employee, I was able to visit literally hundreds, if not thousands, of classrooms over the 11 years I worked for Casa. With the POWER program (Positive Outcomes Within Every Relationship), Casa is able to 7th through 12th grade students an alternative to unhealthy and abusive relationships, as well as offer an incredible opportunity for an open, informed discussion about sexual violence and how to prevent it. This is a vital program and our children deserve to have the opportunity to learn from experts.

The Great!

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

in countless ways. One student wrote to me in a note after the POWER curriculum was shared in his class, "from now on, I will listen to my girlfriend." That has stuck with me for years and I will probably never forget it. Casa has a powerful message.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would ensure that all of the prevention programs Casa has to offer were funded for schools and community organizations all over the greater Phoenix area.

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

helping the youth, parents, educators, and community members of greater Phoenix work together to make our city a safer place to live.

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

amazing people with a wealth of talent, empathy, and compassion for children and adults from all walks of life.

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

do amazing things for the city, state, country and world. Casa has a unique and under-appreciated message to share with the world.

Ways to make it better...

funding would have remained at a level where I could have continued to work for the agency. I would still be working at Casa today if there were funds to pay my salary.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

a lack of funding and visibility within the community. Relationship violence, in all its forms, is a very difficult thing for people to talk about and Casa helps facilitate this conversation better than any agency in the country.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I am very proud of the years I worked for Casa and feel very fortunate to have worked with so many amazing people over those years.

CASA has come to our school to present prevention programs. This has resulted in increased awareness of sexual abuse for parents, staff, and students. It has led to student disclosures which have enabled us to help these children receive the help they needed. It has taught students what to do in a situation that is threatening and helped them to understand their rights to personal safety and the importance of informing an adult of threatneing situations. I have also made referrals to CASA for many years for help to victims of sexual assault and abuse.

The Great!

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

Talking with and working with students after they had the CASA presentations and also CASA one on one conversations.

I have heard about the wonderful work that this organization is able to accomplish in Phoenix. It is evident that all involved in this organization are helping to build a civil, caring society, where compassion reigns. However, every great, amazing organization needs someone at the helm who understands the needs of a community and searches for answers. Stephanie Orr is that person. As the leader, she helps instill in all of her staff that life is about continuous learning and modeling the compassionate life.

The Great!

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

learning about how schools have received the training and the children have learned new skills that have worked for them.

Casa is an excellent organization, a leader in the Valley , promoting social and emotional intelligence and healthy relationships . Their programs and facilitators are an outstanding example of proactive, preventive education.

The Great!

Casa has facilitated programs at our school in K-4 ( Kid's Talk- No More Secrets), helped facilitate our 7th grade trip to Prescott and conducted a 4 part presentation to 8th graders on healthy relationships. Their programs are excellent!
