CHALLENGE #29-2022

CASA

Sedalia, Missouri

Since their incorporation, CASA - Citizens Against Spouse Abuse has never remained complacence, but instead, continued to push forward ensuring that any gaps in services are answered to. We expanded to become the trusted expert on domestic and sexual violence. Our knowledge of trauma-informed services enabled us to combat the barriers that survivors face when fleeing their abusive relationship and/or those healing from the trauma of their experience. These barriers include safety, financial stability, affordable housing, legal assistance, access to community resources, and employment. In order to empower our clients with the proper tools to overcome these barriers, our agency designed our programming to address these issues.
