It can be scary to think about leaving your home when your best alternative is a shelter. These organizations' investment of time and funds in CASA are helping make that decision a little easier.

CASA's shelter has constantly changing needs. This month we would be especially grateful for items on this list, such as:
Baby Wipes, Pacifiers & Diaper Rash Cream
Diapers sizes 4, 5 & 6 and Pull-ups
School Uniforms: solid colored shirts, navy blue pants, khakis
Checks & Gift Cards to buy fresh fruit and vegetables
