June 2016 Newsletter
I remember it clearly… we were teenagers and in love. I asked him, "What made you fall in love with me?” and he answered, “your sadness..." I can tell you about the time he choked me, the time he tied me up and put me in the closet, about all the names he called me. But what I feel would be better suited to tell you is that I am here. Present and in the moment, with a heart full of love. CLICK TO READ MORE

Can Delicious Desserts Enable A Good Night's Sleep?
CASA's dessert luncheon was a sold-out event filled with engaging people, a linen donation drive, live auction of art created by a survivor at our shelter, silent auctions, the 2016 Florida "Outstanding Victim Advocate" and, of course, AMAZING desserts! Thank you to all attendees, volunteers and supporters! Click Here For Event Photos!

Together we will ensure that every survivor at our domestic violence center can safely lay their head down tonight, knowing that tomorrow will be a better day.
