Issue #10, April 2016

Every month, CASA Volunteers dedicate nearly 1,000 hours to programs like our Emergency Shelter, Community Outreach and Thrift Shoppe. There is a story behind each person:

"The hum of the air conditioner provides a backdrop to the conversations fluttering about the room. CASA Volunteers sit side-by-side with survivors seeking Injunctions for Protection. Three stapled stacks of documents sit in front of them, 26 pages combined, riddled with legal jargon..."

Dessert, wine and a good cause-- support CASA at our annual "A Good Night's Sleep" Dessert Luncheon on Friday, May 13 at the Mirror Lake Lyceum. This is one of our most important fundraisers of each year.

We're mixing things up, with a fun, light program, lots of desserts and a general good time.

Come shop at our Jewelry Extravaganza show on Thursday, April 14 at CASA Collections Thrift Shoppe
, 1011 First Ave N, St. Petersburg.
Just this afternoon, a CASA supporter stopped by the office to tell me she was going to see her attorney next week. It wasn’t the awkward conversation you may have expected. She was determined to ensure nothing would stop her from helping CASA continue its mission to eradicate domestic violence within our community.
