Escaping a Violent Home

If you had to leave your house in an emergency, would you have a place to go for the night? Possibly a hotel or a friend’s apartment? What if that emergency displaced you for 30 – 45 days, and you had two children in tow? Would you still have somewhere to go?

Survivors of domestic violence are faced with this very situation when escaping a violent abuser in their home. They may need to leave suddenly, without the time and resources to arrange housing, pack personal belongings or bring professional clothing to wear to as they file a restraining order in court. CASA’s domestic violence shelter gives people the safety and tools they will need in order to build a stronger, more secure life for their family.

Last year, however, more than 1,400 people had to be turned away from CASA’s shelter due to lack of space. This was a statistic we could not tolerate, and in July 2015 we opened the doors to a new 100-bed domestic violence center, more than tripling our capacity to offer sanctuary and services to families confronting domestic violence.

Although the new shelter’s doors are open, we need your help to fund the expanded services and construction costs of the new facility. Please donate to our Sunshine & Hope Capital Campaign in order to secure our ability to provide life-saving services to survivors of domestic violence.

Please join us in helping to build a safe place. The need is great and urgent.
