February 2017 - 40th Anniversary

CASA's 40th Anniversary Logo
It takes vision and more than a little moxie to change the course of society. In 1977, Sr. Margaret Freeman did just that by founding what would become CASA, the official domestic violence center for southern Pinellas County. This year we proudly celebrate our 40th anniversary as a leader in the movement to end domestic violence!

To some, the problem of domestic violence can seem insurmountable. They read statistics showing 1 in 3 women and 1 in 5 men are domestic violence survivors and feel overwhelmed. But that's not what happens in our community. We treasure the victory of each person who escapes an abusive home and builds a successful life free from violence.  READ MORE
