CASA's shelter provides a temporary home for survivors of domestic violence and their children to move onto a safer path in their lives. We are proud every time we learn that a program participant is ready to move into a new apartment, in a safe life. Through a partnership with Habitat for Humanity, some have been able to do even more-- three residents at CASA have gone on to build Habitat homes of their own! Click here to Read More

Did you know that residents of our domestic violence center are given gift certificates to shop for the items they need, such as work clothes and kids' school uniforms? This is all part of our "empowerment" model, where participants are treated with dignity and given the freedom to make the best choices for themselves and their children.

All other items at CASA Collections Thrift Shoppe are sold, with proceeds used to fund our programs and services. The thrift store is one of our most important funding sources, so thank you for shopping at 1011 First Ave N, St. Petersburg!
